Broadlands with Global Giving two years on

Although Broadlands, assisting with children with physical and mental disadvantages, has been established even longer than the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), it was one of the first to be a part of RDA. Our goals have also broadened considerably. Not only do we now provide assistance for adults with disabilities, we are now venturing further into providing therapy for trauma and accident victims as well as those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). All of this for all our members can produce amazing results.

Recent research by the RDA supports what we see every day at Broadlands.

In just 12 weeks of tracking riders' progress we have seen:

  • 74% demonstrated physical improvement
  • 77% experienced greater confidence
  • 75% more enjoyment
  • 65% showed a greater willingness and ability to communicate
  • 72% showed improved relationship building skills
  • 78% demonstrated clear advances in horsemanship

We already have Rowan, one of our dedicated therapy horses, working with Jacky Nuth who has trained extensively in equine therapy; we also want to extend our abilities with more suitable horses and to train more staff.

Thanks to your generosity, we are now progressing towards the building of a dedicated therapy centre, on completion of which we will be able to offer even more possibilities for treatment. Building cannot yet begin because we still need more funding, but we are constantly working towards this goal.

Making donations, however small, will continue to grow our funds.

Photographs below illustrate the sad facilities we have. They really do need to be fully refurbished.

We will always want volunteers. We have many but, for example, one child with severe impairment requires at least two volunteers, so you can see our needs are great. Currently, we are looking for helpers on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday who can commit to coming along regularly to help. If you are not sure about working with ponies or riders with learning or physical difficulties, please come along and talk to some of the team and see what we get up to. If you would like further information, please phone Nigel on 01420 563611.
