Two Riding for Disabled groups based at a yard in Albourne, West Sussex, have been told they have to leave because the premises will be closing in the next six weeks.
One of the groups, Court Meadow RDA, had only moved to the yard last summer and thought its future would be secure there. Both groups do outstanding work with members of their groups. Their work is vital at a time when there is growing demand for equine therapy of this kind.
The second group there is the South Downs RDA group-one of the longest established groups in the country and totally reliant on its volunteers who are the backbone of its team. It is also a completely self-financing charity and therefore has to constantly work hard at raising funds.
Now the two groups desperately need to find new premises so they can continue with their vital work, bringing the therapy of riding to benefit the lives of disabled people.
Anyone who can help provide alternative accommodation for these RDA groups, which do so much to make riding available to disabled people, is asked to contact Carolyn Heitman at: firstname.lastname@example.org
