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.  The Group was founded in 1986 and has grown from having 12 riders and 1 pony to the present day with 95 regular riders and a total of 8 horses and ponies.


With only one paid employee, a Development and Operational Manager recruited in October 2015, Ravelrig RDA is run almost entirely by a dedicated group of over 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.
