by Helen Atkin RDA in Buxton, England, United Kingdom

We did it

To build an indoor arena which will improve the outcome for disabled children and adults having riding therapy by keeping warm and dry.

It is a pleasure to see our riders enjoying their riding and knowing how it also benefits them, even on the coldest of days.

Alison Payne 15th March 2019

Good luck. The RDA does amazing work; I work with someone who has three disabled children’s whose lives have been transformed by riding.

Sally Walker 14th March 2019

This will make a huge difference for the RDA enabling the full benefit of the movement physiotherapy to be felt by the disabled rider rather than physically hunching up to cope with the weather and missing the full core work out. A great cause
