The Horse Rangers Association is a registered charity whose membership is available to all young people (aged 8 upwards), irrespective of background and ability.
We are registered with the British Horse Society and Richmond Council as a Riding School, but what we offer is more than just this; we utilise our 30 horses and ponies to help support the personal development of young people by teaching them to ride and look after the horses. As the Rangers grow in confidence and knowledge they are encouraged to mentor and share this information with the younger Rangers. Therefore as they progress through the organisation they take on more responsibility.
Open throughout the year, over 350 young people attend regular sessions at the stables each week. This number is further swelled by nearly 50 riders with Special Needs who attend our Riding for the Disabled sessions which run from Tuesday to Friday during the school term. All our activities rely on volunteers for their delivery; many of these volunteers were involved as Horse Rangers themselves when they were younger.

A few facts:
Some feedback from parents and carers on their children’s experiences at Horse Rangers:
“I was delighted to see my own child participating with such ease and confidence, and I was greatly impressed by the spirit of friendly cooperation and mutual support which generously outshone competitiveness.”
“Horse Rangers has played a huge part in Jose’s life. It helped calm him and find focus in other parts of his life. He learnt responsibility, commitment and hard work.”
“I wanted to tell you how amazingly happy my daughter is when she is at Horse Rangers.”
“We can see that Charlie is loving the riding as his excitement shows when we mention it to him on the day of riding and post the session we have a much calmer child who is able to access better learning. We can’t begin to thank you enough for giving him this opportunity and realise the work that must go into RDA and all the support from the volunteers.”
