Service description:
The Cottesbrooke RDA provides therapeutic horse riding for people 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.

Groups run from April to mid-October, and each group can accommodate up to eight people.

• 2 school groups on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (term-time only)
• 2 private children's groups run on Mondays and Thursdays (term-time only)
• 1 adult group (which is run from Clipston) runs on a Monday

Private group prices:

• Children: £5 per session
• Adults: £10 per session

Please note: the Cottesbrooke RDA is a registered charity (No. 1074147) run by volunteers, and therefore relies on donations.
