World’s biggest riding lesson

30th September 2009

Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) launched its 40th anniversary celebrations with the World’s Biggest Riding Lesson on 30th September 2009 in riding centres across the UK and internationally.

It is anticipated that more than 5,000 people will be riding in support of RDA on that day setting the world record for the number of riders undertaking a lesson within a set period of time.

Not only for people with disabilities, the World’s Biggest Riding Lesson has been a chance for everyone to get involved and have a great time.   It aims to raise awareness for associations of disabled riders and for RDA in the UK.

The World’s Biggest Riding Lesson was the first in a series of celebrations and special events to mark RDA’s 40th year, which is being supported by Countrywide, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of products and advice to the rural community.

HRH The Princess Royal, President of RDA officially launched the event by attending the first ride of the day at the Chigwell Riding Trust for Special Needs, the first purpose-built riding centre for people with disabilities in the world.
