Therapeutic Riding

Experience the freedom to take the reins.

Each year, more than 1100 riders in Victoria have the opportunity to develop their strength, mobility and wellbeing in our therapeutic programs.

People with disabilities enjoy huge therapeutic benefits from their association with horses. The movement of a horse strengthens muscles throughout a rider’s body. In some cases, riding has also led to increased mobility for the rider. Riding or just being with horses can also provide psychological benefits.

RDAV therapeutic programs change the lives of people with disability, unleashing real benefits across the board—even when participants are simply in the company of horses.

  • Riders strengthen core muscles.
  • Riders benefit from unique movements.
  • Riders enjoy increased mobility.
