Support us

Quest RDA does not receive any state funding or aid. As a charitable organisation it is entirely reliant upon fundraising and donations. The group requires funds of over £30,000 just to keep it running.  All instructors, session leaders, helpers and fundraisers are volunteers. Every penny raised goes directly to Quest.

Quest currently owns 7 ponies; Hunky, Jake, Bassett, Ben and Millie.

Each pony costs us;
£3000 a year in livery
£500 a year in shoeing (farrier costs)
£500 a year insurance

 The Quest RDA Sponsored Ride


One of our biggest fundraisers of the year is the Quest Sponsored Ride, which is open to all riders. It is a fantastic event, which takes place across the beautiful Chobham Common, typically in October each year.
There is a commemorative rosette for every entrant, plus other special awards and it really is a great day out for all the family. 

To take part in this years sponsored ride, download a sponsorship form here, or create your own Just Giving page for the event! It's easy to do, visit our Just Giving page and click on the Fundraise for us button.
