offers therapeutic riding to people with special needs to benefit their health and well being, to achieve their goals and to have fun!
The experience gained through riding and contact with our horses and our volunteers helps them develop self esteem, confidence and independence.
As a voluntary organisation (registered charity no. 1125242) our group receives no state or lottery funding at all. We rely entirely on donations and our fundraising.
RIDING HIGH CAMPAIGN better, brighter, stronger
We are very pleased to announce that our building programme at Casi’s Farm is complete, the culmination of our Riding High Campaign.
Our newly improved facilities offer a lighter, brighter environment and more space for riding and are being fully appreciated by all our users.
Some work has still to be completed over the next few months and fund raising must continue but in the main our object is achieved- a better, brighter, stronger building that will carry our therapeutic riding service forward into the future.
We are hugely indebted to all those individuals, charitable trusts, companies and the many community groups and organisations who have helped us realise our dream. The support we have had has been simply marvellous. THANK YOU!

Chair – Cranleigh Riding for Disabled Group
SUNDAY 4TH MARCH 2018
Come and try
Trec obstacles in the lovely new indoor school at Casi’s Farm and help support Cranleigh RDA at the same time!!
We are running 4 sessions on Sunday 4th March – 10am, 11.30, 1.00 and 2.30. Maximum of 6 riders in each session and the aim is to introduce you and your horse to the fun of doing Trec obstacles. It is a great way to help build a close relationship with your horse and if you want to go on to compete at Trec, it is great experience. Ro Major and Cass Lillington are running the sessions and the emphasis is on having fun while learning what Trec is all about. We are currently reserving the first session at 10am for RDA exercise riders, but the 11.30, 1.00 and 2.30 sessions are open to all RDA volunteers, their friends and all West Surrey RC members.
Booking is through My Riding Life www.myridinglife.com/eventdetails
Cranleigh RDA has over 190 volunteers who assist with riding or running the charity.
You don’t have to have any equine experience to help us as full training is given to all our volunteers.
