This programme is aimed at former riders and horse owners who would like
to get back into riding without the cost and hassle of owning your own
horse. You will have the opportunity to care for and ride a horse for
a minimal weekly charge. Anyone who undertakes this scheme has the added
benefit of knowing they are assisting with the charity work of RDA by
sharing the workload of feeding, grooming and exercising the organisation's
horses. For more information phone Felicity on 021 0715 170.
