Washington Riding Centre (WRC) has been the home of the Tyne and Wear Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) group since 1977, and it is still going strong 40 years on. The people who use this riding school remain at the heart of WRC, as the riding school provides specialist facilities and equipment for disabled riders.
Manager Jane Cherry, along with the rest of the team of dedicated staff and volunteers, work all year not just teaching lessons, but also hosting and helping with varying events throughout the year such as the Winter Fayre and Christmas pony rides. They even dress the horses up as unicorns, reindeers and more for these special occasions.
