HERON'S GHYLL RDA                        - Driving Group

Registered Charity No. 1073569


Heron's Ghyll Driving Group was started in 1985 with one elderly pony. At the present time we have 7 ponies, 3 belong to the group and 4 are privately owned and are very kindly loaned to the Group for its use. Without the ponies that are privately owned, and very kindly loaned to the group for its use, we really could not do the job properly.


The aim is to provide the opportunity for disabled people to participate in this sport with great benefits for their health and well being. It is almost impossible to put into words the profound and lasting benefits that this sporting therapy has brought to people.





Keith Farley ( Pembury, Tunbridge Wells)



Those of us who remember Keith will be sad to hear of his death last Friday and we send our sincere condolences to his partner Wendy.

Keith was one of our very competent wheelchair disabled whips for some years and then remained `A Friend of Heron`s Ghyll` after he left the Group.

I have been reminded that It was Keith who developed the first Heron`s Ghyll website and produced a group Newsletter whilst he was with us, hopefully he approved of the present efforts at the website although no one was willingly to take on the newsletter.


Keith`s funeral will take place on TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 6th 2016 at The Tunbridge Wells Crematorium at 12.15 pm and afterwards at The Spread Eagle for sandwiches.
