Tauranga RDA Equestrian Therapy Centre provides therapeutic horse related activities for children and adults with physical, mental, cognitive, social or behavioural needs. This includes horse riding, horsemanship and vocational skills. Clients range in age from 3 to 65.
Horse riding is an activity which stimulates and exercises both mentally and physically. It is ideal for people with disabilities as well as those that are disadvantaged, at risk or have mental and social issues. Our programs engage people to assist growth, confidence, independence and the development of self esteem.
Tauranga RDA has expanded rapidly in the last five years and provides a service to hundreds of people in the community. Tauranga RDA is raising funds to enable more people in our community to benefit from riding therapy.
