Our RDA currently consists of 8 horses, 4 can be used for riding and 4 therapy horses. It costs over £20,000 annually to feed and house the horses, then there’s vet bills (planned and unplanned)and other routine health requirements alongside the usual utility bills.
We also require equipment for the horses, hats for the riders and specialist equipment such as looped reins or stirrup guards.
We aim to keep our fees as low as possible so require fundraising to help us keep going.
Alongside our running costs we are fundraising for a hydraulic lift to help our riders mount safely on to the horses.
Any donation however big or small is always a massive help and directly impacts what we as a charity can offer to our riders.
