Riding for the Disabled

The 2017 race is supporting the local (Wantage) branch of the Riding for the Disabled.

RDA LogoWantage Group RDA has been established for over 40 years. The Group gives riding lessons to children from the Fitzwaryn school in Wantage at the Blewbury Riding Centre. Over the years they have gained some adult riders too, some of whom started as children! They also give lessons to one or two children from mainstream school.

Their riders have a mixture of problems – physical, learning, behavioural or any combination of those three things. Riding seems to help with all these difficulties and they receive some great feedback from Fitzwaryn School and the communities supporting the adult riders.

They have about 30 volunteers and do their own fundraising – it is a huge boost to have donations from other sources and will make a big difference to them.

If you wish to support this charity a sponsorship form can be downloaded for fundraising and single donations can be managed via their Virgin Money Giving website.


We are always looking for lots of volunteers to help with marshalling and other duties at this race. No experience necessary. All offers of help will be gratefully accepted!  Please contact the Race Director via the e-mail address nearer the top of this page.
