DRDA Disabilities Programmes

Riders who identify as having a disability may be offered either private (45min-60min) or group (45 min) sessions. Riders with disabilities will also be streamed into either ‘riding skills’ ‘therapy’ ‘education’ or ‘relational’ programmes, depending on their interest and goals. Once riders are independently trotting, riders will ‘graduate’ into the riding school programme and will ride alongside riders of all abilities.
