Riding for the Disabled Association Search for More Horse Riding Schools

The Riding for the Disabled Association are encouraging more riding schools and centers in the West Midlands to sign up to the Accessibility Mark scheme.

Riding for the Disabled Association Search for more Horse Riding Schools

The Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is searching for more horse riding schools within the West Midlands that are able and willing to offer additional services for disabled riders.

The aim is to encourage more riding schools to join the charity to make horse riding, for disabled adults and children, more accessible.

In addition to the search, the RDA is also aiming to recruit commercial equestrian centres to join the Accessibility Mark scheme, that was launched in conjunction with the British Equestrian Federation.

There are currently (2018) over 2000 riders that access the RDA groups that operate across Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Hertfordshire.  There are only five commercial centres that operate within the Accessibility Mark scheme.


By becoming an Accessibility Mark Accredited centre, riding schools will gain powerful association with the RDA brand by being apart of a well-respected organisation. Other benefits include access to training and an Accessibility Support Officer for any additional needs.

Primarily, commercial centres should be approved by the British Horse Society, the Pony Club and the Association of British Riding Schools. Accreditation is offered on successful training and assessment.

For riding schools that are interested in learning more about the Riding for the Disabled Association, in the first instance should visit the RDA website.
