Welcome to Wenlo Riding for the Disabled
'When you mount a horse your disability disappears and your abilities appear'
Wenlo RDA Group offers adults and children of all ages with physical and/or learning disabilities an opportunity to ride and look after horses to help their health, confidence and self-esteem. We aim to teach new skills and promote independence by encouraging our riders to take charge of their horse in a safe and secure environment.
Our group is wholly dependant on our team of volunteers whom are all of different ages and have a range of experience in a wealth of fields. You don't actually have to have any horsey or riding experience to be a volunteer, as full training is given, you just need a willingness to want to help others achieve.
Our riders are offered a variety of activities in addition to lessons; Some may want to compete in Regional and National events organised by RDA UK Riding for the Disabled, others can enjoy riding in our beautiful countryside, Beacon Hill National Park is right on our doorstep, some riders just long to be around horses, stroking, grooming and exploring the sensory experience at their pace.
2016 sees us celebrating 25 years
