About us

Woodside Farm Stables RDA group – Charity 1074298.

Based at Rainworth in Nottinghamshire NG21 0DG, we are currently offering sessions on Wednesday mornings and Saturday afternoons – small groups or individual one-to-one.

Woodside Farm Stables group started in 1971 at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Jack and Anita Parker, who had long been involved in promoting riding for disabled children.  The stables has an indoor school, a paddock for lessons out of doors in good weather, and access to Forestry Commission woodland.

The stables also has a unique hydraulic mounting lift, essential for mounting the more physically disabled riders without compromising their independence, but used by ambulant disabled as well.

Focussing on the therapeutic benefits of horse riding, the group has 5 qualified RDA Group Instructors with 2 trainees, assisted by a core team of more than 70 volunteers which includes the parents/carers of the riders.   Woodside owns 3 horses/ponies and has 4 more on permanent loan.
