The Cavalier Centre will be a designated centre for the Riding for the Disabled Association, and the home of Perry RDA Ltd, one of over 600 RDA groups throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland providing people with disabilities with the opportunity to improve their physical and mental health through education and fun with horses. The photograph is of the latest, exciting stage of the build.
Each week well over 25,000 children and adults across the United Kingdom enjoy the experience of riding, vaulting or carriage driving – with opportunities to join in social activities, competitions, or to take a holiday. These activities combine to bring a new dimension to necessarily restricted lives, encourage independence and do much to improve a wide range of medical conditions.
Perry Group has a waiting list of participants, currently has 280 sessions cancelled annually due to bad weather resulting in 1,120 disappointed riders, drivers or vaulters, is unable to carriage drive from home premises due to the very busy roads and is facing a termination of contract at its current location.
