The Chalkdown Group Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is based in Staplehurst, Kent.  We meet every Thursday during term time at Duckhurst Farm Equestrian Centre, in Clapper Lane.

We are part of the National RDA which consists of approximately 500 local groups throughout the country and we are a registered charity in our own right (registered number 1174554).

Join us at our morning riding session, volunteer your

time as a helper (mornings or afternoons) or support us by donating
