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.

Looking Forward to Welcoming Back Riders Soon  18 March 2022

We had hoped to be able to return to riding this term. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes that makes it possible for RDA to even operate. We are conscious that not only do we need to keep our riders and their families safe , but we need to keep all our volunteers safe and to do that we need a lot of things to come together behind the scenes. Although we have not been open for riders, there has been a lot of work done in regard to the future for our riders. Our horses have been kept fit and ready to return to work and our committees and members are working as a team to ensure our return will be safe and successful.

Our horses are our biggest asset and greatest expense.
