Wendy set up our highly successful Larkrise RDA Group in 2012.

Our friendly, highly trained team of staff and volunteers help children and adults with special needs enjoy the multi-sensory experiences of horse-riding.

We offer 30 minute lessons to individuals, as well as to local Special Schools.

An initial assessment of the rider is carried out prior to lessons taking place.

I Saw a Child


I saw a child who couldn't walk,

sit on a horse, laugh and talk.

Then ride it through a field of daisies

and yet he could not walk unaided.


I saw a child no legs below,

sit on a horse, and make it go

through wood of green and places he had

never been to sit and stare, except from a chair.


I saw a child who could only crawl,

mount a horse and sit up tall;

Then put it through degrees of paces

and laugh at the wonder in our faces.


I saw a child born into strife,

take up and hold the reins of life,

and that same child, was heard to say,

Thank God for showing me the way.....

Warminster Show 2017


Two of our star riders, Jade and Amy represented the Larkrise Riding for the Disabled Group at the Warminster RDA Show on 20 June.


We were very proud of them both as they gained lots of rosettes. Below is Amy proudly showing off her rosettes.
