Welcome to the Lambourn RDA website where you can find information on who we are, what we do and how you can get involved – as either a rider or a volunteer.
We also run the Manor Farm Livery Yard, where we have been based for the last two years. We will be continuing to offer DIY Livery in this established small friendly yard with excellent facilities. The 30×40 Martin Collins arena is available for hire separately and is ideal for schooling, lessons and clinics. Please contact Frances for more information on 07798 941229.
The site also includes information on up and coming events and the people who support us. Please take the time to have a look around and let us know what you think!
As a self-funded Charity, we rely on our fundraising events and the generosity of our supporters.
Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is a national organisation made up of Member Groups dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities, through riding and/or carriage driving.
We are included in the local Residents’ Handbook for Marlborough where some of our events and activities are listed, so do take a look here.
As part of the 4Legs Radio fundraising, the Plough at Eastbury have kindly offered to host a Duck Race, which will be online on Friday 3rd July 2020. There will be six races with 30 ducks in each race and you will be able to sponsor ducks, with great prizes for the winning duck in each race.

CORONAVIRUS – UPDATE 17TH JUNE 2020
Riding to restart on a very limited basis.
Following a review by the Trustees and taking into account the Government guidelines and RDA safety measures, we have now been given the necessary authorisation to open for a very limited number of riders and we will be in contact with those riders on an individual basis. We would like to thank everyone for sticking with us through this difficult time and we look forward to seeing some you again soon.
The safety of our participants and volunteers remains a priority at all times and we have been working hard to ensure we are able to operate safely in accordance with the new RDA guidelines.
Do continue to keep an eye on the Covid 19 page of both the RDA UK and MYRDA websites. The Government’s Coronavirus webpage is also frequently updated as things develop, so please check it regularly at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
The NHS website also provides guidance on the symptoms, how the disease is spread, and how to avoid catching or spreading germs. You can view this at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Please keep safe.
NEW VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED
Our riding sessions continue to be very popular. We have four sessions a week on a Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning, Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.
In order to keep all these sessions going, we do need lots of help, even one hour a week would make a difference. If anyone would also like to train as an RDA coach, we would love to hear from you as well.
As a self-funded Charity we rely on our fundraising events and the generosity of our supporters.
