Riding for the Disabled Association of Western Australia – Carine Group Inc. combines the transformative power and the therapeutic effects of horse riding. This is achieved by the provision of equestrian activities that expand the horizons, develop the abilities and enrich the lives of individuals with disabilities and special needs.
RDA Carine activities include Equine therapeutic, recreational and educational riding, vaulting and Hippotherapy programs.
The warmth and three dimensional movement of the horse is transferred to the rider’s body, making it more relaxed and supple, strengthening core stability and improving balance, posture and co-ordination.
We currently offer riding sessions Mondays through to Saturday mornings and Hippotherapy sessions on a Monday and Wednesday morning during the school term situated at 77 Monyash Road, Carine.
In addition, over the school holidays, we run Holiday Camps and other fun activities for children of all abilities.
