How We Help

Social, physical and behavioural focus

The RDA program’s focus is on social, physical and behavioural outcomes.



The social aspect of the RDA program gives participants, volunteers and parents a chance to socialise, connect and make friends. This gives all, who are involved, a boost of wellbeing, connectedness and shared experiences. This can be a lifeline for people with a disability who can be isolated and lonely due to restrictions in participation.



The movement of a horse strengthens muscles; in many cases, riding has led to improved mobility, balance and posture.



RDAV is currently undertaking a research project with La Trobe University to look at the effects of the RDA program on people who have behavioural concerns. Parents, carers and teachers say that the program improves concentration, communication and restfulness.
