Help us Change Lives

The NZRDA runs specialised horse therapy programmes across the country and needs your help to continue our efforts. Our programmes are delivered by a dedicated team of volunteers, therapists and coaches to more than 3,000 people each year. Donations assist us to run our organisation and work to improve the lives of New Zealand children and adults living with disabilities. Through the generous support from our communities we are able to provide training resources, vital equipment, horse care and guidance to our team.


The NZRDA is a registered charity (CC38921) and receives no funding from the government. Your generous donation is welcomed through a range of methods. We issue receipts for all tax-deductible donations over $5.00.
