Kesteven Rideability is run and funded by voluntary contributions and we are always looking for extra help to carry this out. We hold a number of events throughout the year to boost the funding but are always grateful for individual donations for general running costs of the RDA or to contribute towards the running costs of the ponies by becoming Pony Angels. In 2016 Kesteven RDA provided just under 1,000 riding sessions to 40 riders with the help of 30 volunteers.
Here are some ways you could help our group:
£20 would cover the cost of hiring a pony for our weekly riding sessions.
£250 would sponsor a rider for a year of riding.
£5 helps pay for a weekly ride and
£50 buys a block of 10 weeks riding sessions.
£10 pays for one-to-one help for specialist riding therapy on the horse simulator.
Our riders enjoy competing in the National Championships and various other competitions, with great success, extra funding and sponsorships are always sought. They need help with the entry fees plus overnight accomodation for both themselves and the horses.
Any donation is warmly welcomed and guaranteed to be spent wisely.
