Service description:
The Wilby RDA provides therapeutic horse riding for primary-age children with a disability or special need. Riding can be particularly beneficial to people who have profound and multiple learning difficulties because it is multi-sensory experience. It can help with communication and social skills, build confidence, and awareness of others.

The group operates Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings. They work with local schools on weekdays and run a club on Saturdays. Carriage-driving is also available.

Please note: the Wilby RDA is a registered charity (No. 1173610) run by volunteers, and therefore relies on donations.
