Riding for the Disabled Association of Tasmania (RDA Tasmania) is an entirely voluntary,
not for profit organisation whose aim is to provide equine therapy to people of all ages with disabilities.
RDA TAS programs provide opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, healthy, stimulating and therapeutic horse-related activities.
There are currently four RDA centres throughout Tasmania: two centres in
the south at Glenorchy (RDA Kalang) and Kingston (RDA Kingborough); one centre in Burnie in the North West
(RDA North West); and a centre on the east coast, RDA St Helens.
Currently Seeking VOLUNTEERS
RDA Tasmanian centres are seeking volunteers to help us to help people with disabilities to enjoy equestrian activities.
Volunteers are the life blood of any not for profit organisation and RDA volunteers are no exception. We rely heavily on volunteers to deliver our services. You do not have to have any experience with horses as full training is provided by all RDA Centres.
If you are interested in volunteering or would like to find out more information, please contact our State Office:
P: 0429 943 247
You can also find out more about volunteering on the RDA Australia website: www.rda.org.au/volunteering.aspx
