Registered Charity Number: 1073643
Lytchett RDA is a registered charity, which gives disabled children the opportunity to ride for therapy and enjoyment.
The group has been operating from Rushall Park Stables in Corfe Mullen since 1980, using ponies lent by Richard Dixon. Our small team of volunteers runs sessions every Friday for children from Montacute School in Poole and for local pre-school aged children.
The children develop balance and coordination through mounted games and activities, and thoroughly enjoy the contact with the ponies.
The group is funded entirely by donations from riders and benefactors. Previous generous donations have allowed us to purchase our own pony, Stacey. We need to raise funds to pay for her keep, and we frequently have to replace our specially adapted tack as it wears out.
We are also always looking for new resources and ideas to keep our young riders interested and stimulated.
