History

Upminster RDA Group was founded on 13th April 1973 by Sue Dicken and Jace Horner ( our Life President ). Originally the group had their rides at Folkes Farm in Warley and we were there for 23 years.

In November 1996 we moved to Havering Park Riding School in Havering-Atte-Bower. We established our constitution on 11th November 1998.

We made our last move to Colmar Farm Stables in South Weald in September 2003. We are fortunate in that Colmar has a covered arena area enabling us to ride whatever the weather.

Our group consists of volunteers (helpers ) some of whom are horse leaders, some are side walkers and some are coaches.

There are 18 regions under the National RDA umbrella – we are in the East Region. National RDA has its own website at www.rda.org.uk
