Buchan Group Riding for the Disabled at Annandale Equestrian Centre, Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
About Buchan RDA
The Buchan Branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association was established in 1982, and over the years has been based at a number of riding schools in the North-east corner of Scotland. The group is currently based at Annandale Equestrian Centre, just north of Mintlaw, which is an ideal central location for all of the riders.
Term-time riding is provided for between 50 and 60 adults and children, and throughout the academic year the group caters for 25 children from the Anna Ritchie School in Peterhead, and five from Ellon Primary School. Most of these children ride fortnightly.
The adult riders come from Willowbank Resource Centre, Peterhead, and Robertson Road Resource Centre in Fraserburgh, and they enjoy their activity on a weekly basis.
