BETA International supports Riding for the Disabled Association

BETA International is pleased to announce that Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) is its chosen charity for 2022.

RDA, whose horses benefit the lives of more than 25,000 disabled children and adults, will enjoy a high-profile presence at September’s exhibition, where visitors and exhibitors can find out more about the association’s crucial work.

With fun activities like riding and carriage driving, the association provides therapy, fitness, skills development and opportunities for achievement – all supported by 18,000 amazing volunteers and qualified coaches at nearly 500 RDA centres all over the UK.

Claire Williams, Executive Director and Secretary of the British Equestrian Trade Association, said: “We are delighted to welcome back RDA as BETA International’s chosen charity.

“RDA makes such a difference to so many disabled children and adults through the wide range of equestrian activities and interactions. 

“We are delighted to be able to support them in highlighting the work they do to the trade and helping them to make contact with new supporters for the future.”

BETA International’s chosen charity receives a stand at the show and a slot in the seminar programme.

Fran Bos, Corporate Partnership & Events Manager, RDA UK, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as the charity of the year for BETA International.

“RDA has been an integral part of the equestrian landscape for over 50 years and we have a huge amount to offer the businesses that serve this fantastic community.

“At BETA International, we will be raising awareness of the various ways that businesses can benefit from working with us, showcasing our life-changing activities and encouraging more companies to give their support.”

RDA is an inclusive and diverse organisation, welcoming clients with physical and learning disabilities and autism. Through its network of member groups, RDA is at work in every corner of the UK, bringing the therapy, achievement and fun of horses to as many people as possible.

RDA can only carry out its life-changing activities thanks to the generosity of donors, the dedication of volunteers and the good nature of fantastic horses.

BETA International is the world’s number one trade show for equestrian, country clothing and pet products. The 2022 show takes place from 11 to 13 September at the NAEC, Stoneleigh Park.
