Joining RDA Doveton
Joining the Program
RDA Doveton operates from an indoor riding arena at Myuna Farm, as such we don’t need to cancel too many bad weather days. During 2019 we will add some trail riding opportunities to our program. We have a hoist available to assist riders to mount the horse. Our team of coaches are striving to get the best out of our riders. Teaching riding skills through different activities, mounted games, horse care but above all ensure our riders have fun whilst learning new skills, from improving balance and communication to independent riding.
- Lesson Fees: $200 per term
- Length of lessons: from 20 minutes up to an hour depending on rider.
- Weight restrictions: Max. 85 kg
- Waiting list: approx. 2-3 years
Volunteering at our centre can be done during the week (helping out at sessions), during the weekend (horse welfare) or behind the scenes (maintenance, fundraising or on the committee). Whilst some roles require experience with horses, most can be learned. Reliability and enthusiasm are much more important. Due to the amount of training involved, a commitment for the longer term would be an advantage. We offer a friendly atmosphere with a wide range of people who have one thing in common: they want to make a difference. There is plenty of training involved and opportunities to develop new skills. We would love to hear from you!
