RDA is of benefit to children and adults with a wide range of special needs.  RDA caters for riders as young as three years old through to adults.

Some groups offer an early intervention programme for riders younger than three years old.  Riders may be referred to RDA by Teachers, Health Professionals, Parents /Caregivers or by themselves. 

Each rider will be offered an individualised goal-centred riding programme in either Therapy, Education or Sport and Recreation.
