Our RDA work relies on volunteers. These are made up of horsey volunteers, people who have never touched a horse but would like to work with the children and everyone in between.  Please speak to us if you do feel you have time to help our RDA work in anyway including fundraising or helping with leading riders or just being a point of contact for a particular group.

How our Volunteers help

Volunteers at Kingsmead can take part in a variety of task which may include:

Horse Care

Grooming, tacking up, un-tacking

Assisting in lessons: leading ponies and side-walking with riders

Helping with fundraising events: catering, helping with raffles, tombolas, public collections etc

Assisting at our Open Days and weekend events


We welcome volunteers with time to give during the working day, in the evenings and weekends.  No prior knowledge of horse care is required as full training will be given.  All volunteers over the age of 16 must undertake a DBS check.

Volunteering can be very flexible from regular sessions to one-off fundraising events. There are so many ways to get involved. Give us a call if you could help - it would make such a difference.

We recognise our volunteers, we couldn't do without them! Every month we give a Volunteer Of The Month Award. Find out more in the Kingsmead Newsletter or speak to Rachael our Volunteers Co-Ordinator

Herd life is important for horses; we have at least three herds here at Kingsmead. Come and enjoy watching the horses interact.

We pride ourselves on knowing the horses and will tailor their work accordingly. Horses enjoy a variety of activites to suit their personalities.

Our horses get individual care. They are seen  by the vet, the farrier, the osteopath and the equine dentist when needed.

Our smallest pony is 8hh and are largest horse is 17.3hh; we have some steady cobs and some more energetic warmbloods.

Meeting  their needs

A horse for everyone​
