Riding for the Disabled Assoication (RDA) uses the power of horses to improve the lives of disabled adults and children across the UK. Their three principal objectives are to:
Deliver opportunities for improving quality of life and lasting therapy,
Enable participants to achieve to their full potential and
Facilitate the opportunity to take part in an exciting and enjoyable activity.
the movement of the horse allows the pelvis, spine and associated muscles to
work together as they would when walking. The rhythm of the ride relaxes tight,
stiff muscles, improves core strength, co-ordination and balance – providing
important therapy to people with a physical disability. RDA are working
with increasing numbers of people with learning and social disabilities, for
whom the opportunity to develop a relationship with a horse and achieve
significant goals creates a vital psychosocial therapy. All RDA
riders benefit from an activity that allows them to experience a unique degree
of independence and achievement that their disabilities may prevent them from
experiencing in everyday life.
