Service description:
The Grafton Manor RDA provides therapeutic horse riding for adults with acquired brain injury (ABI), and adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). 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 rides on Thursday mornings during term-time, with the kind permission and support from Andy and Jackie Kitchin.

Please note: the Grafton Manor RDA group is a registered charity (No. 1074131) run by volunteers, and therefore relies on donations.
