Despite the very wet weather this year we had a yet another successful summer event at Ham Polo Club!  Guests were able to watch the polo, eat a delicious barbeque and listen to the jazz band while catching up with friends.  It was, as always, a very relaxed evening in a beautiful venue and raised over £2,000 for our RDA sessions.

Thank you to The Victoria Foundation for funding 2 new saddles for our RDA ponies (one of which is being modelled by Mr T & Molly) and a set of new poles for our RDA riders!  These are much needed items that we struggle to fund but due to their generous support we have 2 happy ponies and countless happy RDA Riders.

Thank you!

We are delighted to announce that we have received funding from Kingston Council to support 5 of our local children with their horse-riding therapy sessions for the forthcoming year.  As a very small charity this means so much to us and ensures that these riders can continue their journey with us.
These individual sessions are funded by The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Community Resilience Fund. Thank You.

HAM FAIR

We had a lovely day at Ham Fair, thank you to everyone who visited our stand and supported us by participating in the tombola, lucky dip and Name the horse.  We raised over £350 for the RDA which is great! 


We now have no tombola/raffle prizes, they all went!  If you could donate any items to us, we would really appreciate it for the Summer Fair at the beginning of September.  Please drop off any unwanted items (toiletries, games, bottles of wine/alcohol whatever!) to the office at the stables.  Thank you!
