Our riders at Pegasus RDA get to enjoy educational or therapeutic sessions designed to individuals aims and abilities.
Our volunteers are part of a fun and dynamic team with roles that vary from working with riders and horses to fundraising and coaching roles.
We participate in many great events in the calendar year including shows, fundraising , conferences and training courses.
