Avon Riding Centre for the Disabled

The Avon Riding Centre is one of the largest purpose-built RDA equestrian centres in the UK, enabling the disabled people of this area to benefit greatly from the opportunities, independence and happiness that learning to ride can bring.

We are a registered charity, affiliated to the National Riding for the Disabled Association, and are self-funding. Therefore, to maintain the heavily subsidised disabled riding programmes, the Centre offers tuition in flat work, jumping, schooling and hacking to able bodied riders - on their own, or on the Centre's horses and ponies. In addition, the indoor arena and the conference room, already used for regional and national training, may be independently hired.

Close to 200 disabled children and adults with a wide range of disabilities pass through our doors each week to enjoy a high standard of tuition and therapy, whilst riding in the near Olympic sized indoor arena or through the woodland trails and fields
