What is the Gingerbread Horse Challenge?

Gingerbread Horse is a community-led fundraising challenge in support of Riding for the Disabled.


Join in now and register as a Gingerbread Horse Baker. Bake and decorate tasty Gingerbread Horse biscuits, then sell your biscuits to friends, family, workmates and the public. Donating the proceeds will assist us to reach (many) more RDA riders and change more lives.

 Joining the Gingerbread Horse Challenge is easy. Just follow these 5 simple steps:

registerSmall5 To join the Gingerbread Horse Challenge for RDA, please register online as either a New or Returning Individual Baker, Business Baker or School Baker. We'll send you a special Baking Pack. You can bake anytime during August or soon after.
bakeSmall2 Bake one batch (or many more) of tasty Gingerbread Horse biscuits using your own recipe or our special biscuit recipe and horse-shaped cookie cutter provided in your Baking Pack.
decorateSmall2 After your biscuits have been baked, decorate them however you like from dipping them in melted chocolate to icing them and adding sprinkles. This is your chance to get creative! Once they're all decorated and looking great, use the provided bags, stickers and inserts to package your biscuits ready for sale.
sellSmall2 Sell your biscuits to friends, family, workmates and the public for just $2 per biscuit. To help, we include advertising posters in your Baking Pack, as well as hints and tips on how, where and when to sell your biscuits.
