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.



Thursday 14th December 2017 – Sorry we are closed today due to the snow and ice

Hopefully sessions will be back to normal soon 

The Centre is then closed for Christmas with the last riding day being Sunday 17th December and we will re start on Thursday 4th January 2018.

Pip has won RDA Horse of The Year 2017 – Huge congratulations to him and thank you to Sarah Healing for nominating him back in July this year.  RDA arranged to come to meet him and made a short film of his story and we are grateful to his owner Emma Brown who has given him on loan to Penniwells RDA.

Pip is a very special member of the Penniwells Pony Team along with all our others.  Please follow the link to watch his film and feel free to share far and wide – We are always looking for more Pips as well as the funding to purchase horses of this quality – so do get in touch if you feel you can help in any way.
