The RDA provides Equine-Assisted Therapy, also known as Hippotherapy. Horses provide a tool for physical therapy and cognitive improvement in a unique format that is fun, exhilarating, and sometimes has the power to change a person’s perspective on life. Besides the physical benefits, contact with the horse is a powerful experience, and the strong bond that is sometimes experienced often has a profound, uplifting effect on people who are troubled or suffering.
We are always delighted to hear from potential volunteers, especially those who may be interested in sidewalking with the riders. No horse experience is required! All new volunteers will start off as a side-walker first. You must be over 16 years of age to volunteer. RDA runs Training Days in March and September each year. However, if you’ve just missed one, it’s not a problem, as you’ll be given ‘on the job’ training.
RDA Singapore is a registered charity and Institution of a Public Character (IPC); UEN No: S82SS0081H. Since our inception in 1982, we have provided equine-assisted therapy (hippotherapy) to more than 6,000 physically and mentally disabled beneficiaries. We have seen beneficiaries who can sit up longer, walk a bit longer or who have become more sociable after riding with RDA Singapore.
A registered charity founded in 1982, Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore provides free horse riding therapy to children and adults with disabilities from all over Singapore.
