FPDRG Enlightening lives

Our aim is to provide opportunities for people with a wide range of disabilities to enjoy the unique benefits of horse riding and carriage driving. Follifoot Park Disabled Riders Group see disability as a starting point from which everyone can achieve something.

The Group is entirely self-supporting and for us to continue providing riding and carriage driving, we always need more volunteers. We do not incur salary costs but we still need to raise about £3,000 a month to cover our riding and carriage driving costs.  Can you help us by volunteering or giving us a donation?
