Riding For the Disabled South Australia - Horse riding as therapy and active recreation for people with disabilities.
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.

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