Totara Park Riding for the Disabled

Totara Park Riding for the Disabled

Your donation will help provide life changing opportunities for disabled riders through therapy based horse riding activities.

Auckland

We are affiliated to NZ Riding for the Disabled and are based at Totara Park, Manukau.

We provide interaction with horses to develop increased ability, independence and self worth for children and adults with physical, intellectual, emotional and social challenges.

Our greatest expense is our horses - our main assets! Without them there would be no riding therapy for people with disabilities in our community. The horses must be fit , healthy and happy all the time. We are a non profit organisation receiving no government funding and rely entirely on the generosity of the public for support. Our rider fees are kept minimal and do not cover our running costs so many volunteer hours are spent fundraising and sourcing corporate funding.

More about us

Totara Park RDA [TPRDA] formerly Whitford RDA was established in 1977 & is affiliated to NZ Riding for the Disabled. Riding for the Disabled provides therapeutic interaction with horses for people with disabilities. Totara Park RDA is self funded.

Our latest lockdown  8 September 2021

Our RDA work tirelessly to provide life changing horse riding for the disabled in our community. Lock Down means no riding and unfortunately our costs don't go down, far from it. Your support is appreciated at any time. Later this month we will be launching a specific fundraising page targeting support for our riders. Our riders benefit in so many ways - They learn to move, connect, adapt and succeed. This leads to a stronger sense of confidence that translates from the arena into homes, schools and their communities. Riding helps with communication and confidence. RDA is New Zealand's only accredited horse-riding therapy programme. Pictured is one of our riders completing the NZRDA Introductory to Dressage test , a wonderful achievement to complete.
