About RDA [Episkopi]
RDA [Episkopi] was set up in early 1985 by Lady Langley, wife of the then Commander British Forces.
Today, with Maria Stuttaford the wife of the present Commander as its President, the Association continues to flourish with a full programme of riding, fund raising events, and outings for the disabled riders.
Most of the riders, whose ages range from 4 to 47, have physical and/or mental disabilities that in some cases confines them to a wheelchair, or affects their mobility so severely that they are unable to walk or stand without assistance. Nevertheless, when mounted on a horse, their bodies seem to relax and enable them to adopt a more balanced and controlled posture. This relaxation also produces smiles and sounds of joy from the youngsters, whose disabilities have denied them much of the fun and enjoyment they should have had in their lives.
