Wellington Riding for the Disabled (WRDA) mission is to develop confidence, independence and well being for people with disabilities through therapeutic horse related programmes. We have helped hundreds of people who face the challenge of disability to experience the benefits of horse therapy. We are one of over 50 independently financed and managed Groups throughout the country affiliated to the New Zealand Riding for the Disabled Association (NZRDA).

Wellington RDA Covid 19 - Ceasing of Operation
In light of the recent Government announcement, it is with much sadness that we announce that Wellington Riding for Disabled will be going into a period of recess effective immediately. This means that there will be no ride programmes at all, until further notice.
The health and safety of our riders, volunteers and staff is paramount. As we are a hands on service, with many of our volunteers and riders being compromised, we feel it is in the best interests of everyone's safety to cease operations immediately.
Rest assured the horses will continue to be looked after and staff will continue to clear messages and emails, on and off site. We continue to follow all Government recommendations.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or queries,
Take care and stay safe
Donna, Jill and Claire
