Horses changing lives


Welcome to the New Zealand Riding for the Disabled Association (NZRDA). We guide and support 55 Riding for the Disabled groups across the country, which provide safe and successful horse riding and horse-related activities. Every year these groups help more than 3,000 Kiwis who live with physical, intellectual, emotional and social challenges. Through specialised horse therapy programmes these people develop their independence, confidence and abilities. The outcomes are outstanding and the stories are inspiring.
