Welcome to Penniwells Riding for Disabled Centre

Our aim is to provide disabled people with the opportunity to ride to benefit their health and well being. Without our much valued Team of Volunteers & Staff at the Centre such a first class service would not be able to be provided.

Penniwells RDA provides riding & stable management sessions for adults & children and are dedicated to ensuring that all our riders receive a high standard of professional tuition tailored to their personal ambitions and capabilities. Our instructors work closely with physiotherapists and other health professionals to encourage every individual to aim for attainable goals – some modest, others far more ambitious.

While competition plays a healthy role in RDA activities, our focus is to ensure that all our riders gain maximum benefit from a positive and enjoyable form of exercise.

Riders are given opportunity at all levels from riding for pure therapeutic value through to competing at Regional, National & International Level within RDA & Para Dressage.




As of today 17/03/2020

Penniwells RDA will now be closed for the foreseeable future due to the virus.  Riders will receive an up to date email with more information.  Volunteers we are also closed to you at this time. Our dedicated team of staff are doing a wonderful job keeping each other and the centre going. 

This is going to impact Penniwells hugely financially and we hope you will continue to stay in touch and support us through this difficult time.
