This is an exciting time to get involved to help shape and progress new initiatives, and provides interesting and rewarding opportunities to be part of one of the South East's forward looking charities devoted to enabling those with disabilities to develop life skills and achieve personal ambitions while connecting with animals in the countryside.
Bradbourne Riding for the Disabled (RDA) Group is one of the largest RDA groups in the UK and has been operating for over fifty years. It is based at the Bradbourne Riding and Training Centre outside Sevenoaks and is entirely run by 130 volunteers who enable over 300 disabled riders and carriage drivers to participate in 4000 rides and carriage drives each year. There are no paid staff in any role. As well as providing an introduction to riding for very disabled individuals, the busy Group takes part in dressage, endurance, and show jumping, and is regularly involved in local, regional, and national RDA events, local shows and fund raising activities.
Joining the Board of Bradbourne RDA Group offers the following benefits:

The roles will be undertaken remotely with Board meetings and the annual Open Meeting being held in person on site at Bradbourne RDA Group quarterly.
