We are always grateful for any support.

Although we are affiliated to Riding for the Disabled Association (our 'Trade Association’) we are a financially independent company providing therapy for disabled children. In order to meet our costs, we rely entirely on the generous donations that are made to Newbury RDA and through Fundraising Events run by our Volunteers and other kind people.

Newbury Riding for the Disabled is a registered “good cause” with West Berkshire Lottery. Click here to buy tickets.

West Berkshire Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in West Berkshire. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit West Berkshire and its residents.

All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit West Berkshire and its residents.

  • Lottery Tickets cost £1 per week – 50p of each ticket goes to the chosen cause; 10p to a community fund which will enable one-off grants to be made to the lottery causes in addition to their direct fundraising and will be awarded by an independent panel on behalf of West Berkshire Council.
  • Each ticket has a 1 in 50 chance to win a prize each week, with a top prize of £25,000!
  • That’s a better chance of winning than the National Lottery or the Health Lottery!

Each ticket consists of 6 numbers between 0 and 9. A draw will take place every Saturday night when a 6-digit winning combination will be picked. Prizes will be given to players with tickets that match the first or last 2-6 numbers from the winning combination. Match all 6 and you win the JACKPOT!

Other opportunities are being considered. If you have a suggestion or would like to contribute in any way, please contact us.


Our new Database for Rider and Volunteer Records is now up and running. All Coaches and Class Organisers are currently being trained by Lindsay Morris who has given up an enormous amount of effort and time to mastermind the database - HUGE AND GRATEFUL THANKS, LINDSAY. Without the support of all those who contributed to our Database Fundraising Project we would not have got it off the ground - thank you.


The surface of our indoor riding arena has become very dusty, rutted and needs to be replaced as soon as possible for the safety of our ponies and volunteers, so we have ordered a new Premixed Wax Coated Surface which is easy to maintain and does not need irrigating. Please click on the link to find out more information on how you could help us.


Huge thanks to go Rapid7 who sent a group of volunteers to help us, in October, for the second year in succession; and to Vodafone who brought a team of around 30 volunteers in November to continue the good work (reports elsewhere on the website). In addition, we would like to thank Downe House for their continued help sending small groups to dig up ragwort, clean water troughs etc.

Work Parties provide invaluable assistance with many jobs, both small and large that mount up over the year, which often get overlooked until we notice in the autumn that everything seems to look a bit tired. Grateful thanks to all those who left their office jobs for a day to help us out – we hope they enjoyed themselves!

As always, many thanks go to all of our volunteers and supporters, without whom we would be unable to operate; to all those who ran fundraising events, especially those who run our highly successful Autumn Fair under the leadership of Carolyn Whitehead and Linda Benson; and to Merial Animal Heath who provide annual vaccinations for RDA ponies countrywide.

• Bucklebury Horse Club
