  Auckland Rehabilitation Disability In Need

We are one of the 54 Riding for the Disabled Groups in New Zealand, 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. It costs at least $8000 each year to look after the health and welfare of one RDA horse.

As our riders only pay a very small fee per ride, we are left with a significant short fall every week.

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.

Use of funds

The funds with be used to pay for essential equipment, gear and food for our primary therapy pony Saint. As our riders only pay a small fee of $12 a ride, we are left with a significant short fall for every week. Each horse costs $8000 per year to maintain.
