Riding Develops Abilities

RDA NSW is a volunteer organisation providing equine assisted activities for people with disabilities to develop and enhance abilities

At the Raymond Terrace and Lower Hunter centre, our aim is to develop in our riders’ physical and social skills through the enjoyment of horses.

One of our riders, Deb, not only comes to RDA on Friday's and rides the lovely Sprinkles, Deb
is also part of a cheer leading troop.

Please take a look at what she has been doing, their team won the competition and brought the house down with many tears and cheers.

So lovely to see dreams being made reality.


One of our young riders of many years Lleyton Lloyd has been selected to represent Australia overseas in two teams.

Team 1 is to represent Athletics Australia at the Oceanian Melanesian Championships in Suva, Fiji in July 2016 where he will be sprinting. 

Team 2 is to represent NSW at the Special Olympics Trans-Tasman Tournament in Hamilton, New Zealand in November 2016 where he will be long jumping and sprinting. Lleyton has previously represented NSW Special Olympics at the Junior National Games and the Open National Games.

It would be wonderful if we can all get behind Lleyton and support him to reach his dreams in athletics.

Go Lleyton Go!!
