Palmwoods Riding for the Disabled Association Inc.

Acronym: 
Palmwoods RDA

There is as much emphasis on the care and handling of horses (where riders can manage) as there is on the actual riding lessons. Riders are encouraged to participate in the duties and responsibilities associated with caring for and working around horses. Riding activities range from therapeutic exercises, basic games. We believe that the riders gain personal confidence from the unique form of physiotherapy provided by the horses. Many groups hold competition days between accessible riders from the various Groups, either at one Group's own grounds or at local horse Shows etc. The integration with the public comes from the many able bodied people needed to help our riders by leading horses or supporting the rider getting riders mounted, assisting in games or with lessons on caring for the welfare of horses. New helpers are always needed, made most welcome and although some horse experience is desirable it is not essential, as special training is given.
