We never have enough volunteers,

It isn’t all hard work !

Our loyal and dedicated volunteers are vital for both our riding and carriage driving sessions. The more help we have, the more riders and drivers we can take on.

Our volunteers help with the following:

  • Catch, groom and tack up ponies before the lessons.
  • Help set up the riding or driving areas prior to sessions and clear away afterwards.
  • Lead ponies, support riders (side-walk) and accompany the carriages.
  • Make tea and coffee !
  • Help look after our ponies.
  • Help with the groups admin.
  • Fundraising

Experience with horses is a definite advantage, but isn’t necessary!  All our volunteers go through a training process and work alongside experienced helpers to begin with.

Safety of our clients and volunteers is paramount

Volunteers must be 12 years minimum and anyone over 16 is subject to a DBS check.

We run sessions on Tuesday, Thursday Friday and Saturday mornings.  If you would like to find out more about volunteering for the RDA and feel able to commit to a few hours help on a regular basis then please get in touch so we can arrange a mutually convenient time and you can pop down and meet us all.

Volunteering does not have to involve working directly with the ponies. We are always very grateful for any help.
