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.

RIDING WILL BE RESTARTING ON 6TH APRIL
We are delighted to be restarting our riding sessions on Tuesday 6th April and are really looking forward to welcoming as many of you back as possible. This term we will adding three sessions on Fridays, which is very exciting. Thank you very much to everyone who is helping to expand our groups sessions, allowing more people to enjoy the benefits of riding.
Covid security will be as it was before the last lockdown and will it remain in place until we are allowed to lift restrictions. If you wish to wear a face mask please do, but not if you are Coaching as it muffles your voice!
Very many thanks to all of you who are helping to look after the RDA horses over the Easter weekend and for the continuing support of our fabulous volunteers.
It has been a very difficult 12 months and lets hope that moving forward 2021 turns into a better year than 2020.

NEW VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED
Our riding sessions continue to be very popular. We now have five sessions a week on a Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning, Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning and new from April 2021, Friday 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.
