About Us
Contact Us


South Dartmoor RDA Group are looking for new committee members, including a Chairperson, to take the group forward into the 2018 season; these are voluntary roles and full training will be provided with support from the existing committee as well as from RDA National Office. Our group exists to provide opportunities for disabled riders to participate in fun sessions whilst learning new skills in a sociable environment.

We ride at Bickleigh Barracks riding stables on a Tuesday evening from 6pm until 8pm, providing two 45-minute sessions for our riders. As the sessions are outdoors, our season runs from April to September.

Anyone interested in becoming a committee member or Chair of the group should contact the secretary, Jane Ford, on 07876 135632 /

The South Dartmoor RDA Group have suspended riding for the 2017 season due to unforeseen circumstances. We are working towards riding again from April 2018. We would like to thank everyone involved for their support.

Donation from Plymouth Ladies Lions Club July 2016

A huge thank you to Plymouth Ladies Lions Club, who presented our Chair, Lesley with a cheque for 300 towards our new shed and coffee table.  We appreciate their hard work, raising money for their chosen charities and we feel very priviledged that we have been chosen this year.

South West Dartmoor RDA is a voluntary group dedicated to making a lasting difference to the lives of disabled people, enabling them to ride to benefit their health and well-being and to achieve their goals and to have fun!
