Ravelrig Riding for the Disabled Group is a member of the UK Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) and part of the Edinburgh & Borders RDA Region.
The Group provides people with a disability the opportunity to ride and enjoy all the activities connected with horse riding. Founded in 1986, Ravelrig RDA has grown from 1 little pony and 12 riders, to the present day capacity of 8 horses and ponies and 95 regular riders.
Ravelrig RDA is run almost entirely by a dedicated group of more than 100 volunteers ranging in age from 12 to 75. The Group is managed by a Board of Trustees who are also active volunteers with the Group.
