The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders, based in Carshalton, Surrey is an important part of the local community and has been on the present site since 1974. We are a founder member of the Riding for Disabled Association (RDA) and one of the largest purpose built centres of its kind in the UK. The Diamond Centre provides unique facilities for over 360 disabled children and adults each week to enjoy therapeutic and recreational benefits of horse riding, vaulting and carriage driving.
We provide horse riding and carriage driving to those with disabilities which range from cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and learning difficulties. Most of our riders have lifelong conditions but many are victims of road traffic accidents. At present we have a waiting list, such is the demand for our therapy.
We have recently introduced able-bodied riding lessons to supplement our charitable income and this is an activity we are looking to expand.
