    As a totally self funded charity Barnfield RDA is reliant on donations and on- going fund raising efforts of their volunteers , It costs over £20,000 per year to run the facility and in addition to this target they are now fundraising for a new horse to look after the disabled.
    Smartie is a gentle horse who spent years providing children and adults with disabilities the chance to ride and experience the freedom of being on a horse, improving their physical skills and coordination as well as emotional and relationship building skills. Smartie has now retired and is happily eating grass.
