In view of the Government's latest advice on the Coronavirus situation we have reluctantly decided to postpone RDA until further notice in order to protect our volunteers and riders. We sincerely apologise for any disappointment this may cause.
Thanks to some generous donations received, Arundel Group RDA was delighted to be able to buy new rugs for some of our RDA ponies. Here’s Harold sporting his lovely purple one all ready for Lockdown No. 2 and the winter ahead. Keep safe everyone.
Welcome to Arundel Group Riding for the Disabled
The aim of our group is to give the opportunity of riding to any disabled person who might benefit in general health or happiness.
Our riding sessions take place on Tuesday afternoons during term-time at the Arundel Riding Centre - in Arundel, West Sussex. The group is part of the South East Region RDA which covers Sussex, Surrey and Kent.
take effect from 25 May 2018. The Trustees have adopted a new Data Protection Policy and also a Privacy Notice. A copy of the Privacy Notice is attached under About Us
In the unlikely event of a fire you would be required to assemble in the picnic area behind the picket fence (clearly signed as an emergency assembly point)
Volunteers are required to sign in and out on the whiteboard adjacent to the RDA cupboards. Riders/parents/carers/teachers will be logged each week by a volunteer. This enables us to account for everyone on site in the event of an emergency.
A message from our National RDA Chief Executive
Dear Groups, Regional and County roles,
As 2019 draws to a close I would like to say THANK YOU for everything you have done for RDA this year.
This year has been extra special, as we celebrated 50 years enriching lives through horses. It has been inspiring to see how everyone has got behind the 50th Anniversary and celebrated in their own way. Across the UK 3,000 gold rosettes have been handed out, there have been parties and fun rides and of course - plenty of cake. We are also lucky that a lot of our celebrations have been shared across the media, raising awareness of our work like never before.
I am also delighted to share with you the initial results of this year’s annual return, which have revealed that, in total, we delivered over 420,000 rides and drives - an increase of 8,500 on last year. This is on top of your 50th celebrations, as well as many of you embarking on the new coaching pathway, taking part in training and increasing the range of activities your group offers. Thank you for achieving so much, for your commitment, your energy and enthusiasm.
