Welcome to RDA Duchy Group

A vibrant community founded in 1989 by Polly Hart and friends, dedicated to providing therapeutic riding and horsemanship to children and adults. Operating every Wednesday, our group utilises an exceptional indoor school, ensuring activities year-round, rain or shine. With three magnificent horses at the heart of our program, we offer both joyous riding experiences and competitive opportunities at various levels. Driven by the spirit and dedication of our volunteers, we are a self-funded organisation committed to making a difference. Join us in our mission to empower through riding, as we continue to foster growth, resilience, and happiness in our riders’ lives.
