Our Organisation

The aim of RDA is to provide horse riding opportunities to facilitate people with disabilities and others in Nelson district who are likely to benefit from such participation.

Current Activities

We have been busy over 2009 / 2010 and have our arena in place and a barn for our hay. We have paved an area for visitors and riders and are working towards putting a clear roof over the top of that area.
We are always on the look out for volunteers so if you have energy to spare for a good cause give us a buzz.
We are having our next AGM at the RDA premises above at 7.30 on Tues 13 April 2010. All welcome
We are also having an opening day for our arena on Sat 1st May 2010. Please contact us if you would like to attend.
