Join an activity
Although riding is a core part of what we do, at Gaddesden Place RDA we offer a range of equine activities
We welcome individuals and groups from both mainstream and specialist schools, and residential care homes. We’re open Tuesday to Saturday in term-time, and provide holiday activities too.
We have participants aged 4 upwards with a wide range of needs and disabilities including:
- cerebral palsy
- autism & ADHD
- learning difficulties
- sight and hearing impairments
- global developmental delay
Because of the nature of our work, we are specially equipped and provide a fantastic range of facilities.
Explore each of our equine activity pages below to find out more detail and get involved, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
