Welcome to Riding for the Disabled Association
of Tasmania Inc.

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 Tasmania programs provide opportunities for anyone with a disability to enjoy safe, healthy, stimulating and therapeutic horse-related activities.

There are RDA Centres throughout Tasmania: two Centres in the South at Glenorchy (RDA Kalang and RDA Kingborough); one Centre in Burnie in the North West (RDA North West); a Centre on the east coast (RDA St Helens); and a Centre in the process of being established in the North (RDA Ulverstone).


RDA Tasmania Centres are seeking volunteers to help us to assist people with disabilities to enjoy equestrian activities. Positions on the State Board or centre committees are also available.

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 at our RDA Centres, by accredited RDA Coaches.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to find out more information about RDA Tasmania, please phone  our State Office - 0429 943 247.

Thank you to our partners for helping RDA Tasmania make a difference in our community:
