About us

Newbury RDA is run from the stables at Wyld Court Stud, Hampstead Norreys. We provide riding sessions for over 60 children from schools in the Newbury and surrounding areas:  Mary Hare School, Priors Court, Fir Tree, Trinity School and The Avenue School, Reading.

We also take individual referrals for children to ride, so please do get in touch.

The lessons take place every day during the term time, morning and afternoon. We have an indoor school which we tend to use during the winter months but prefer to be outside when the weather permits.

At the weekends, we run a lesson for individual riders on a Sunday morning but for the rest of the weekend the ponies have a well-earned break.

“Newbury RDA is a voluntary organisation, and we are always looking for volunteers to assist with the children, ponies or just the general upkeep. If you are interested, please do get in touch."

"We can only carry out our life-changing activities thanks to the generosity of our donors, the dedication of our volunteers and the good nature of our fantastic ponies,”
