Who We Are
Where We Are
We hold our riding sessions at, The Grove Riding School, Lane End Road, Lane End, High Wycombe, Bucks. HP14 3NR (“the Grove”) – see Location.
We own one horse Frank – see our Horse, and we hire horses and ponies from The Grove.
What We Do
We enable children and adults, who have disabilities, to ride a horse, under qualified instruction,
leading to RDA Proficiency Tests and Achievement Awards. We aim to combine a friendly, happy atmosphere with positive forms of therapy and tuition, tailored to each Rider’s individual capability.
We find that they obtain great enjoyment from this and, perhaps, the key benefits of improved self-confidence
and pride in their achievements.
Who Helps Us
We have a marvellous team of about 45 Helpers, whose principal role is to help the Riders.
There are also 5 qualified RDA Coaches who use much ingenuity to organise different teaching activities and games.
Everyone gives their time, voluntarily. Would you consider joining us? To find out more and how you might help, see Volunteers.
Our Group was founded in 1978. We were then based at Maidensgrove Farm, near Henley-on-Thames.
In 1983, we moved about 4 miles to Turville Valley Stud, Turville, where we spent 18 successful years, before moving to the Grove.
We became an independent Charity (Registration No. 1074410) on 25 February 1999.
