Supporting Us

Donations, grants and fund raising

Our group relies totally on donations by individuals, grants and support from charitable trusts and companies, and fundraising by volunteers.

As any horsey person will tell you, keeping a horse is expensive. It costs about £20,000 a year to run Mount Group RDA. This mainly goes to pay for hiring the horses and ponies needed for the riding sessions, specialist tack and equipment and support for our riders to compete. We ask riders for a donation towards the cost of the horses for their sessions but we never exclude a rider who cannot afford to pay.

Everyone who helps at Mount Group - whether coach, helper, groom, driver or whatever - is a volunteer.

There are lots of ways you can help us raise much-needed funds

  • Company donations
  • Grant support
  • Individual fundraising
  • Make a donation
  • Join in our fundraising events

 Whether you are an individual or a company, your support for our work is much appreciated. Thank you!
