Riding for the Disabled
Wantage 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.
