Gaddesden Place Riding for the Disabled Centre is a registered charity dedicated to teaching disabled people to ride.

We provide riding facilities and instruction for people with a wide range of disabilities.  Our riders can:

  • Learn a skill

  • Increase self confidence and awareness

  • Improve muscular power, balance and coordination

  • Stimulate circulation and digestion

  • Widen boundaries of experience and social contact

  • And have fun!

We emphasise safety and all our Instructors are qualified to the required National RDA standards.


We have Riders aged from 4 to over 65 with a wide range of physical disabilities and learning difficulties.  Some of them come from local schools for children with special needs, some of them from residential care homes and there are also many who come as individuals. 

"I look up to people when I'm in a wheelchair,

they look up to me when I ride"

This short animated film is based on a story written by Ernest Cox, one of our volunteers. 

His story won a competition, and the prize was the creation of this film to promote his favourite charity - Riding for the Disabled.

The narration is by Ernest himself.  In the background, you can hear the sounds of an RDA lesson in progress.
