What we do

Thanet Disabled Riding Centre is an independent, nonprofit organization located in Broadstairs. With the fantastic support from our team of volunteers, we can cater to 40 riders a week. 

The Centre has now been running for 47 years and is currently home to four ponies. Three of whom are in full time work and our other one is a 34 year old, retired, tea drinking Shetland! We are a full time charity which takes £150 per day to run, so we appreciate any support we receive.

Our Family



The footballer

Watch out, Harry Kane! You have some tough competition against our very own Missy.

Apart from being one of the youngest in the herd, she sure knows how to kick a ball. 



At the Centre, we currently have support from a team of around 20 volunteers. We have a vast support network of volunteer fundraisers and trustees, who have dedicated their lives to keep our independent Centre going. Our volunteers usually start with us, having no experience with horses. They are taught on the job, gaining life skills.
