Centre loses its fight for survival at Sauchieburn

The Board of Trustees for Bannockburn Group of Riding for the Disabled confirmed  that operations could no longer continue at Sauchieburn and all activities here ceased with effect from 14th August 2014

  This is due to:-

  • the deteriorating access road
  • the fact that fewer than a quarter of our regular riders can access the Centre
  • our income falling so much it no longer covers our costs
  • concerns that the safety and welfare of staff, riders, drivers and horses could be compromised by the ever-increasing volume of heavy traffic and machinery in the vicinity of the Centre.

If you wish to find out about other RDA groups in the area or access local riding schools who are accessible to RDA riders please contact RDA National on www.RDA.Org.UK


RDA National (Charity Registration No. 244108) has launched a project to build a new centre of excellence for riding and carriage driving in the centre of Scotland, you can donate and support this new project at
