In 2017 the Riding for the Disabled Woodbridge & District Group moved to its new home at The Bays, in Clopton. It was officially reopened by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, President of The RDA, on 19th December 2017. We are enormously grateful for the support we received to enable us to build this fabulous new facility.
We are extremely lucky to have wonderful facilities. We have a large indoor school, an indoor viewing area and an outdoor menage. We teach riding and carriage driving to disabled children and adults regardless of what their disability might be and have been doing this for over 30 years.
The benefits to all who ride or drive with us are huge. It provides them with valuable therapeutic exercise, an opportunity to develop their social skills and a chance to build relationships with our horses and ponies.
Adults come to us from resource centres in Ipswich, Woodbridge, Felixstowe and Saxmundham. Children are often directly referred to us by their doctors or physiotherapists, or by personal recommendation by those children and their parents who already benefit from our centre. Our sessions run six days per week, ably supported by a team of volunteers.
