WHAT WE DO
Drum RDA provides the opportunity for over 200 regular riders to ride each year. During term time lessons take place on a Tuesday to a Saturday.
Our riding lessons aim to improve confidence and social skills as well as improving riders balance and coordination
Riders can work towards the Endevor Award and Riding & Horse Care Certificates. Some of our riders are supported through our regional dressage competitions.
Over time many riders develop a bond with the horse they ride.
What is it?
The programme combines the educational and therapeutic benefits of interaction with horses with those of charitable, disability-oriented voluntary work. The aim of the project is to help identify and overcome personal barriers and to either reintegrate into school life or to move towards alternative positive destinations.
What are the benefits?
TurnAround nurtures critical life-skills such as confidence, trust, responsibility, self-discipline, resilience, empathy, respect, motivation and focus, while also offering valuable work experience and vocational skills training.
