Pegasus RDA is a Not For Profit charity, reliant on donations and grants.

You can donate to our charity here or by visiting

Each year we require a minimum of £6000 in order to run 3 half hour sessions a week, accommodating up to 12 participants per week.  In addition we need funds to buy essential equipment  such as riding hats and pay for training for our volunteers.

In addition to our basic running costs we are looking for donations and grants to enhance the experience and opportunities we provide.

In 2018 we are raising money to fund a number of vital schemes including improvements to our host yard to improve wheelchair access and funding to buy and pay for the upkeep of our own pony. The first table below shows our current fundraising targets. The second table gives you an idea of ongoing RDA costs and what your contribution can buy.

Cheshire Community Foundation Logo

Thanks to Cheshire Community Foundation for donating £800 in 2017 to purchase our first rider and volunteer polo-shirts. This has enabled us to look like a team and be easily recognised on the yard and at external events.

Thanks to Tesco Bags of Help for a grant of £4000 for the upkeep of our own pony. This will be used in 2018 once we have found a suitable pony to meet our group’s needs.
