Muirfield Riding Therapy

Muirfield Riding Therapy is one of the largest, dedicated Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) Centres in Scotland. Based in East Lothian, we are a volunteer-led, fully self-funded Centre, providing pioneering, life-changing equine facilitated therapy. Our services are free, we make it a fun experience for all involved, and provide an opportunity to make new memories. In 2019 we celebrated 30 years of service to the community. 2020 was the 10th anniversary of our partnership with NHS Lothian, The Children’s Therapeutic Riding Service.

There are 7 equine facilitated therapy sessions per week, both outdoor and in our wonderful indoor facilities, allowing 120 participants each week to benefit from riding therapy on our specially trained ponies. Our sessions are run entirely by trained volunteers and we are fully self-funded.

" I have Multiple Sclerosis and I took a really bad relapse. I woke up one morning and couldn’t move at all. My physio used to volunteer here and she said to me one morning, 'What would you think about going to ride a horse?' I said, 'You’re joking?!' She wasn't! "
