Rehabilitation Disability In Need

We are one of the 56 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 of $12 a ride, we are left with a significant short fall every week.


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.
