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 - Friday 20th August 2021
The government has announced Covid alert level 4 will extend until Tuesday 24th August at 11.59pm, therefore WRDA will remain closed through Tuesday and there will be no riding. The horses are well and will continue to be cared for by our staff on a rostered basis.
We await the next announcement on Tuesday and will be in touch when further information comes to hand.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
