About Dunedin RDA
We are one of 54 voluntary (not-for-profit) Riding for Disabled groups around New Zealand, and we are affiliated with the New Zealand Riding for Disabled Association. Our mission is to provide confidence, independence and well-being for people with disabilities through therapeutic horse riding and horse care. The Dunedin Group RDA was established in 1973. The location of Dunedin RDA has changed over the years but we now have our own land in Fairfield, Dunedin.
Dunedin RDA is a voluntary organisation which is run and managed by volunteers. We receive no government funding and rely on Grants, corporate sponsorship and generous donations from the community to keep the RDA operating.
We run three days a week Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, providing therapeutic horse riding for approx 50 riders, with a wide range of disabilities (see Benefits of RDA). New riders start with two side walkers and a leader, and some will progress to riding independently and even pony club and competition.
