EBOP Riding for the Disabled holds therapeutic riding sessions four days a week for anyone with a disability.
Eastern Bay of Plenty Riding for the Disabled (EBOP RDA) is a non-profit organisation. We are one of 54 groups that operate under the umbrella of all NZRDA.
EBOP RDA receives no government funding and relies on fundraising and the generosity of the community to ensure we are able to provide a high level of service to our riders.
We provide therapeutic riding sessions for people with disabilities. At any given time we have over 80 riders attending our sessions. Ages range from 5 to 60+ years.
Therapeutic riding sessions are conducted four days a week and are planned and facilitated by trained Coaches, with the assistance of our volunteers.
Participation in our sessions sees riders increase in confidence, improve their balance and strength, and learn horse master ship skills. Others may reach independence and be able to enjoy riding as a recreation or sport. The skills they learn will spill over into everyday life.
