Sponsor a Pony
Our ponies are very special, they are endlessly patient and work incredibly hard, and their welfare is our priority. Each one of our ponies is unique and has their own personality. For just £5.00 per month you could make a significant impact on the care of your chosen pony.

A Volunteers story
If you are thinking of volunteering then look no further than joining us! Volunteering at Cotswold RDA truly changes lives, to see how you could change someones life read Karen’s story, it’s inspirational!
Here at Cotswold Riding for the Disabled our purpose is to promote a culture of learning, development, achievement and enjoyment for our riders that allows each and every one to reach their full potential.
With over 180 riders each week, supported by 120 volunteers, we want to ensure that Cotswold RDA is “where aspirations become a reality” for everyone.
All our riders are physically disabled or have learning difficulties/special needs, if we can encourage a child or an adult to communicate and help them make sense of the world; to say “walk on” for the first time; spend 30 minutes in the saddle or even to hold their reins then we know we are making a difference.
Since our very first ride some 50 years ago, we have come a long way. We are now planning for the next 50 years to guarantee our riders have the best experience we can provide for them.
Thanks to a very strong bid to People’s Postcode Lottery via our RDA National Colleagues, we are really excited to announce that we are the proud recipients of an incredible £10,000 grant which will be used to refurbish our pony stalls.read more
