Somerset RDA driving group needs a new base

  • The largest carriage driving for the disabled group in the south-west is urgently seeking a new home, as their current landlords are selling up

    Somerset Levels’ Carriage Driving for the Disabled Group has been based at a farm near Wells, Somerset, for 11 years.

    But now the group must move.

    The group serves more than 30 disabled people, from those who get therapeutic benefit from being driven, to those who compete against able-bodied drivers.

    The group needs a new base in the same area for the three ponies, specially adapted carriages, hay store and horsebox.

    Ideally, the site would have additional space for classroom sessions.

    Organiser Caroline Saunders said: “We can offer reasonable livery and rental costs, but we need our new home to offer access to carriage-driving for our disabled clients — either quiet country roads or off-road facilities.”
