Haworth RDA Riding for the Disabled


We here at Haworth RDA are solely focused on enabling disabled riders in and around Yorkshire to learn and excel in horse riding, for leisure or competitions. We offer people with physical and learning disabilities horse riding and stable management lessons throughout the year. The minimum age for our riders is four years old and we have no upper age limit. Horse riding improves core strength, flexibility, suppleness of limb and develops fine and gross motor skills. In addition, social interaction increases confidence, self-esteem and social skills.
All lessons are led by qualified RDA group instructors and focus on learning in a fun and friendly way with the playing of games, riding to music and verbal interaction. We have access to a physiotherapist and have a Child Development Officer, both of which can custom fit riding plans to each individual rider’s needs ensuring maximum therapeutic benefit.
