Wakefield Riding for the Disabled
The Wakefield Riding for the Disabled Association (WRDA) is working in partnership with Spawforths to design a first class facility that will be used for national, regional and county riding for Disabled Association events and training sessions. It will also be used by local riding clubs and individual riders in the community.
WRDA is a registered charity that provides horse riding for people with disabilities at Pennine Camphill Community College which provides further education and training for young adults with special needs
The design concept is to consolidate and enhance the existing accommodation that is currently spread across the site. An existing indoor arena will be remodelled to provide new viewing facilities, complemented by the addition of new ancillary accommodation wrapping around it. New stable blocks form a courtyard configuration will provide privacy and enclosure.
The architecture is based on typical barn type aesthetics to minimise the visual impact of this development on its greenbelt setting and its neighbours. Sustainable materials; straw bale, gabions with local stone infill and timber boarding are proposed throughout.
