Norfolk Coast RDA services a catchment area from Dersingham to Cromer and inland to Harpley, Brisley and Hindolveston, although anyone is welcome.

Nearly twenty active volunteers, three RDA qualified coaches and severalhorses and ponies, all assessed to the RDA standard, to suit the majority of riders are waiting to support you. We are also delighted to have Piggy March- international event rider as our patron.

Catering for first time and nervous riders, as well as the more experienced and goal orientated, we can also provide non- mounted equine experiences. We have a County Physiotherapist to give advice to those who are physically challenged. Riding takes place in a well fenced outdoor arena with a spectator area. Assistance dogs are welcome.

We currently have 5 sessions per week on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and can accomodate up to 4 riders per class currently. we can also assist with reports and letters to headteachers to gain permission and access for school children with special needs.  

Please scroll down to our Twitter page. You can join us on Facebook and Instagram at Norfolk Coast RDA and we will be delighted to hear your comments.

Welcome Michael Bishop!This week we are delighted to welcome Michael Bishop as RDA’s new CEO. Michael’s career has spanned private, voluntary, and public sectors and he brings extensive leadership experience. Michael is passionate about RDA’s mission, and the powerful social, physical, and mental benefits of spending time with horses. Opening up that experience to more people, particularly those with less opportunity and diverse needs, is paramount to him. His love of horses was sparked at an early age growing up in London, helping at the local stables. Michael’s enthusiasm for equestrianism endures, and he now competes as a keen amateur event rider.💚 rda.org.uk/news_cpt/rda-appoints-new-ceo/ ... See MoreSee Less

#autismawarenessAs you know I meant to share this yesterday as part of World Autism Awareness Day - I am really proud to be autistic and always find my life so constantly challenging sometimes. One thing that always makes a huge difference in my whole life is spending time with horses and riding them on my journey!I am really lucky to have so much support from Scropton Horse Centre which is part of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) as an RDA rider and volunteer over the past 24 years getting where I am today 💚"I've always found being with horses and riding makes me feel so much better. When I was growing up and other things were difficult, riding was the one thing that really worked for me."#WorldAutismAwarenessDay ... See MoreSee Less
