Leatherhead Riding for the Disabled Association provides horse riding lessons for disabled children, to benefit their health and well-being.
RDA offers the chance for young children with a disability to learn to ride. The children who come to our sessions have learning difficulties and may also have physical disabilities and behavioural problems. Riding helps immensely with the children’s physical development, strengthening muscles and improving co-ordination. They also learn many new skills appropriate to their ability. The children really enjoy the contact with the ponies and their teachers tell us how much they look forward to their riding sessions!
Leatherhead RDA is fortunate to have some very dedicated volunteers but needs to rely on fundraising and donations for specialist instructors, insurance, equipment and hire of the ponies.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
