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.
The new term starts on the 14th September when we hope to be able to have a few more riders back, subject to the Covid-19 restrictions.
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.

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.
