Pegasus Riding for the Disabled is a voluntary, non-profit organisation which provides opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, healthy, stimulating, horse-related activities in the South Manchester area. Pegasus RDA is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, established in January 2017 by a volunteer trustee team with a wealth of RDA and equine experience. Having all volunteered with RDA in the past, when the opportunity came to set up a new group, it was snapped up and a lot of hard work has gone into the wonderful new RDA Group.
The group currently has six Trustees, four Group Coaches and two Trainee Coaches. This means that it is more likely that at least two of the coaching team will be at the sessions offering advice, ideas and support to our participants, volunteers and parents/carers.
We use the horses and facilities of North Cheshire Equestrian Centre, Carrington, South Manchester. Our sessions run on Sunday mornings between 9:30 and 12:30. We currently run four 30 minute lessons and we group together people of a similar ability in order for everyone to get the most from their lesson time. We currently have over 30 regular riders, supported by our team of wonderful volunteers who make it possible for Pegasus RDA to function so efficiently and positively.
Success of our group to date has been apparent with a wealth of national and regional awards, including RDA Young Volunteer of the year in 2017 and RDA Volunteer of the Year in 2018, demonstrating the hard work and enthusiasm from the entire group.
We are a friendly, welcoming, inclusive and lively team and would love to hear from you if you would like to be involved.
As a charity, we are 100% reliant on sponsorship and donations in order to carry out our activities. If you can help please do contact us or donate here.
