Our People

We couldn't do what we do without the dedicated and passionate support of RDA People.

We're always looking for people to help and it could be you! We have different roles and positions available, and all training is provided. You don’t even need to like horses.

You could be a side walker, and work with the rider on their personal goals, or a leader, focused on keeping the horse focused and alert. Or perhaps you would prefer something behind the scenes. Whatever your needs, we want you!


Volunteering means lots of different things to each volunteer. Many enjoy watching the riders’ achievements and just enjoy being part of a community and meeting new people.

"Helping riders overcome their initial lack of confidence to seeing them riding to a point where they don't want the lesson to stop is priceless. No other activity has given me such satisfaction."
