  • Mission statement

    The Horse Riders Association was founded in 1954 to provide training and education in horse management for the poor and disabled in the community.
    The HRA today aims to provide the local community with the highest standard of personal development for its young people. We offer a healthy and fulfilling opportunity for youngsters, regardless of background and ability, to develop character, responsibility and a concern for animals, the world we live in and other people, in a safe and enjoyable environment.
    Our Special Needs Section operates two squadrons as part of the Riding for the Disabled Association.
    All of our officers and instructors are unpaid volunteers. We have 150 volunteers in all in with a vast range of experience.
    We offer work experience to young people, including those with special needs & those at risk of exclusion, who are often the people who benefit most from this experience. We have introduced a Young Carers Programme, giving vulnerable children a vital respite from responsibilities at home & a very special opportunity.
    The Association's display team, or Musical Ride, is made up of 8 riders who perform in smooth, graceful, choreographed formations at special events.
    The Rangers' Marching Band practices at The Royal Mews in preparation for carnivals and fetes.
    HRA is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity: it is NOT a riding stables, but rather an education establishment. Our patron is HRH Princess Michael of Kent.
