To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Riding for the Disabled Association - RDA - is launching a ‘50 Faces’ campaign to highlight the fantastic achievements of its members, volunteers and supporters.

The focus of the campaign is on challenging preconceptions about disability, volunteering and equestrian sport, through the inspiring stories of people within RDA. 

These stories will then form an interactive collage of images, audio content and films, which will be used as a focal point for the RDA website and across social media platforms throughout its 50th anniversary year in 2019.
