As a busy RDA stables, we always have a number of vital projects on the go. Currently we are striving to raise funds for a mechanical horse (horse riding simulator) for use by the disabled children and adults who ride with us.
Whilst many of the people who ride with us are able to ride a real horse with the support of riding support volunteers, some of them with more severe disabilities, need additional help and support . We believe the use of a horse simulator would offer a riding experience to even the most disabled participant, for whom sitting on a live horse would not be possible or practical. Its use offers a safe and controlled environment for the development of skill and confidence, and provides riders with a sense of achievement and the opportunity to participate in a sport that they enjoy.
