Service description:
The Wilby RDA provides therapeutic riding for primary- aged children with a disability or special needs. 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 term time.

They work with local schools on weekdays and families on Saturdays.

The horses can carry a weight up to 8 stone.

Please note: Wilby RDA is a registered charity (no. 1173610) and therefore relies on donations.

New volunteers will be very welcome, experience not necessary, all training will be given.
