Arrow Riding Centre For Disabled
Who we are
Established in 1982, we are a friendly, volunteer-run charity located in Dartford Kent. We provide therapy through the use of the horse/pony to people with physical and learning difficulties from 15 months of age upwards. Our team of qualified instructors work with our physiotherapists to develop tailor-made programmes for each of our riders, helping them to unlock their potential on and off the horse.
We also encourage progression into riding lessons, teaching up to Paralympic standard.
The Centre is entirely self-funding, having to raise in excess of £140,000 per year. With only a small number of salaried trained instructors, all donations received go directly towards providing lessons, and not to administration costs.
