About RDA SA

Who we are and what we do

Riding for the Disabled (RDA) is a worldwide movement represented internationally by the Federation of Horses in Education and Therapy International (HETI), nationally by Riding for the Disabled Association of Australia Ltd. (RDAA) and within Australia by State bodies.

Riding for the Disabled was first incorporated in South Australia in 1972, when horse riding therapy was still in its infancy in Australia. RDASA became a registered NDIS provider when the program was rolled out in South Australia in July 2013.

Riding for the Disabled Association SA Inc (RDA SA) has 12 accredited centres run entirely by volunteers.

Some volunteer roles include:

  • administration
  • fundraising
  • horse-care
  • coaching
  • volunteer training
  • Property Management / Maintenance

New volunteers are always welcome to help deliver our special services.

The majority of RDA clients in South Australia are children but services are available to anyone with a medically certified disability.

RDA SA centres are overseen by RDA SA State Office at O'Halloran Hill. All staff have a passion for RDA and the unique service it provides for people with disabilities.

If you would like information to help you participate in RDA from an NDIS perspective, please contact the NDIS Client Manager at the State Office (Ph: 8377 3150 OR email:
