 Published on: 2nd December 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Gaddesden Place, Riding for the Disabled group are currently looking for new volunteers to help with the rides that they provide for local children and adults with varying disabilities.

Founded in 1974 by Trina Hall, Gaddesden Place is a dedicated Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) centre giving children and adults with special needs and disabilities the opportunity to ride and have fun. 

Over 100 riders benefit from the physical activity of riding, as well as gaining in confidence.

Trustee of Gaddesden Place, Cathy, said: “Our wonderful ponies are well trained, and give so much pleasure to our riders, and also our amazing volunteers.

“Gaddesden Place RDA group was set up over 40 years ago, and is a well-established small local charity, that relies on our volunteers to lead and sidewalk with our riders and ponies.

“No experience is necessary as full training will be given.

“So why not come and join us?  Get your 10,000 steps done in a morning whilst enjoying the fresh air on the Gaddesden Estate and helping young people have fun. We do have an indoor arena too for when it is raining.”
