East Holton Driving Centre is a member group of the National Riding for the Disabled Association. Our objective is to provide the facilities for those who, for various reasons, may not otherwise be able to do so, to learn to drive in our delightful area. Our participants have a wide range of disabilities and they all enjoy the driving at whatever level, which is the most important thing. Many people come closest to spiritual presence while out and about in Nature, and what better way to do that than in one of Ashtree Stables' carriages.

The Trustees hold responsibility for managing the group and ensuring that all activities are conducted safely and in compliance with RDA strict guidelines. All instructors, horses and equipment are approved to RDA specifications. Carts specially adapted to carry wheelchairs are used and all drives are escorted. Every drive is carefully suited to the client from a gentle ride or drive, to a lesson in dressage or cone driving. Second reins are provided to enable the participant to learn to drive.

A team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers and carers runs every operation. A small charge is made which helps to offset the high operating costs for horses and equipment.
