"My son recently had a block of lessons with you through his school, Rattray Primary. He thoroughly enjoyed these and I can see a real benefit to him in terms of both the physicality of riding but also the emotional benefits."

"As a non-horsey family I'm not quite sure of how RDA operates but I wondered whether it would be possible for me to pay for him to have on going lessons with you, perhaps fortnightly or monthly. "

"My Granddaughter spent time with your group before through her school and she would love to come back. She would love to come back to see the horses, especially Erin, she still talks about her. She is desperate to get back pony riding."
