Our Mission Statement – ‘Improving Lives’

“To give people with disabilities the opportunity to learn to ride or drive a horse and benefit from this therapeutic activity and to support this activity by ensuring they can learn in a pleasant, safe and supportive environment.”

Established in 1987, the RDA Glasgow Group is dedicated to improving the lives of people with disabilities through the provision of horse riding and carriage driving. With the help of over 150 volunteers, the RDA Glasgow Group offers 47 hours of classes per week, providing opportunities for therapy, achievement and enjoyment, improving health, well being and self-confidence, and benefiting mobility and co-ordination. The Group works with people from the Greater Glasgow area.

    Hi, I am working as a community gardener in Milton Community Garden for North Glasgow Community Food Initiative. We work with local communities promoting food growing and healthy eating.
    As we do all our own composting I am looking for if possible small local donations of manure as was wondering if you might have any spare?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi there.

    I am wanting to have an hour or so of riding lessons with my daughter and have heard good things about RDA Glasgow. My daughter is 12 and I’m 44!! Ideally this would be on a Saturday as I work from Mon-Fri.

    Please let me know if this would be possible.

    Hi just looking for some more info. I have a daughter 17 years old who has aspergers, and a hearing and sight loss. My son 5 years old who has autism. I believe these lessons may be beneficial to both

      Hi Sally,
      I’m not sure if anyone got back to you about this in August. Please contact our office on rdaglasgow@btconnect.com for information about riding lessons. Many individuals on the autistic spectrum do indeed get a lot out of riding lessons with the RDA.
      Best wishes
      Pauline on behalf of RDA Glasgow

    Hi my 14 yr old daughter has dispraxia and is hyper mobile , we’ve been told that horse riding will help her balance and core strength… plus she loves horses. We have tried to get her to go to youth groups and such to help with her social skills, but she just gets upset !!
    I think she would love horse riding lessons if you can fit her in plz?
