Your donation will help in the care of our 9 horses and assist in providing therapy riding at a low cost to our local riders.
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. 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.
