  Auckland In Need Rehabilitation Disability

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.

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.

As donors to Totara Park Riding for the Disabled we want to let you know that in this increasingly uncertain time one thing has remained the same, that is the care of our nine horses. Our horse manager 'Fiona' is checking and looking after the welfare of our horses everyday. Pictured are Dancer, Hershey and Tobi with Zoe peeking in from the back. Rest assured our herd are being lovingly attended to every day. Thank you
