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!
The 2018 Prudential Ride London 100 – 29th July
Tim Adams and Paul Sayers will be riding the Prudential Ride London 100 cycle race.
Our two cycle riders are raising money for the Group’s Riding High Campaign, a massive fundraising initiative (circa £750,000) required to replace our aged and no longer fit for purpose stables. Although our new stables have now been built and we are back in operation, funds are still urgently needed Please support them – https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/cranleighrdaprudential100
Paul Sayers, Associate Director with Grant Thornton : “This year to raise funds for Cranleigh RDA I am taking part in Ride London. 100 miles of cycling! My son Henry attends riding sessions with RDA at Casi’s Farm. We had to wait 9 months to get our place but now we are one of the lucky ones. Henry loves attending, is gaining confidence, learning riding skills and making friendships. As a family we enjoy spending Saturday mornings at Casi’s chewing the fat with other families. Saturday mornings now have a real purpose and energy”
Tim Adams, partner of Barlow Robbins in Guildford: “I am rapidly approaching my 60th birthday and cycling is the best form of exercise for me these days! I first got into cycling in 2011 when I completed the London to Paris event for the British Legion and then again on two further occasions. This will be my third Ride London 100. I am delighted and honoured to support this fantastic local charity which relies totally on their own fundraising initiatives in order to continue to provide this much needed service.”
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.
