North Shore Riding for the Disabled
A fundraising campaign to build an arena roof to shelter our young riders who are challenged by disability.
NSRDA provides therapeutic, horse-riding programmes for children and young adults with disabilities from across the Auckland region. We are in need of a roof to provide shelter over the existing outdoor arena. The Arena is the area where riders learn their skills but in wet or stormy conditions riding has to be cancelled. Even in fine drizzle the conditions could result in illness among the riders, whose health is often fragile as a result of their disabilities. The riders and their caregivers find that, particularly in winter, many sessions have to be cancelled, resulting not only in strong disappointment but in loss of momentum in life-changing therapeutic and social improvements in riders. On hot days riders have to contend with heat and UV exposure. A covered arena will allow continuity of the programmes while protecting the health and increasing the level of enjoyment of riders.
NSRDA Trust manages and develops the buildings and land used by NSRDA to provide therapeutic horse riding programmes, for children and adults with disabilities, across the Auckland Region. These programmes improve physical, mental and social well-being.
Use of funds
All funds raised will go towards the $550,000 project cost. Total cost will be covered through tagged funds, grants from Foundations and Trusts and funding from this page. All money raised will be kept in a fund tagged specifically for the arena cover. North Shore RDA is a voluntary, not for profit organisation providing therapeutic horse riding for people with disabilities to improve their physical, intellectual and emotional well-being.
