Our Amazing Volunteers

Coaches and volunteers are an integral part of what we do. We have around 65 volunteers at NSRDA and we're always on the look-out for more.

 

Volunteers play an active part in running our facilities and supporting our riders:

  • Preparing RDA horses prior to each rider's arrival

  • Leading horses and ponies during RDA riding sessions

  • Horse training and horse care

  • Assisting during RDA riding sessions (for example, as side-walkers who encourage our riders, help them focus, and ensure they're safe)

  • Helping with unmounted activities

  • Assisting RDA coaches and therapists with equipment for RDA games and riding sessions

  • Fitting helmets and checking riding clothing

  • Providing refreshments for volunteers (and for riders and their families or care-givers)

  • Maintaining horse pastures, fences and equipment

  • Fundraising, publicity and RDA local committee activities

 

North Shore RDA operates during school terms 1 – 4. We run riding sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from approx 9.00am to 1.00pm, and Thursdays from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

 

To see what our volunteers think about RDA, see our Volunteer Stories.
