Located in a rural setting in Eastern Berwickshire, the aim of Berwickshire Group RDA is to provide a beneficial riding experience to people of all ages and abilities. The Group is run by volunteers and works with six horses and ponies to offer riding and vaulting sessions four days a week during school term, with occasional activities and competitions at other times. The Group runs regular training for volunteers and organises numerous fund-raising activities throughout the year. All activity takes place in our indoor, purpose built facility which includes a hydraulic mounting ramp, and a hoist. After much fund raising a Mechanical Horse was installed in December 2016. The Group welcomes enquiries from new participants and those interested in volunteering.
