About Bambers Green RDA

Bambers Green Group is a sub group of Riding for the Disabled Association, allowing less able children and adults the ability to learn to riding & enjoy the many benefits.
The Group is based at Bambers Green Riding Centre near Takeley in Essex.
We are a smallish group, with 2 dozen volunteers, operating 1 morning a week, term time. We provide lessons for a group of individual riders & then a local school group, where the classes rotate each term, allowing as many children as possible to benefit.

As a group we own one horse of our own - our little gem, Riot. He puts up with so much & has the patience of a saint. He lives at Bambers Green as a working livery to earn his keep, which means he works hard all week long. Other ponies that we use on a regular basis belong to the Riding School, with Nobby being another firm favourite.

A few details about where your money will go:
  • For every £10 sponsored a child will be able to enjoy a riding session.
  • £30 will fund a lesson for a school group of up to 10 children.
  • £40 will pay for a new set of shoes for Riot for a term.
  • £120 would fund Riot's shoes for a year!
  • £200 would hire the facilities for a term.
