The RDA National Training Centre is supported by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers and we are always looking for talented and enthusiastic people to join us. Take a look at our current vacancies – and we look forward to hearing from you.


Volunteer with us!

Volunteers are essential in every area of our Centre. From coaches to cake bakers, people support RDA in many different ways – and we always need more help. Whatever skills you can bring, giving your time will mean that more disabled people can enjoy the therapy and fun of horses.

Volunteering with RDA should be rewarding and fulfilling – and we want you to benefit from your time with us. Our programme of volunteer training means it’s not just our participants who get the chance to learn and achieve their goals. We welcome volunteers of 12 and over, there is no upper age limit and we need a wide range of skills – not just with horses. RDA is a diverse organisation and we are at our best when we bring together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

Current volunteer vacancies include:

  • Groundskeeping - from gardening, fixing odd jobs, harrowing our arena with our tractor or helping to build a course of jumps there is always lots to do! 
  • Yard support - including spending quality time with our horses helping to feed, muck out and taking them to the paddock for a well earned rest.
  • Lesson support - from helping to prepare the horses for sessions to being there to support our riders and help them make the most out of their time with their best friend.
  • Events support - Most Sundays are jam packed with Events, helping people on both their own horses and ours to gain essential competition experience in a inclusive and supportive environment.
