New Zealand Riding for the Disabled

This morning at Government House Auckland, Dame Cindy and Dr Davies hosted a morning tea in celebration of New Zealand Riding for the Disabled’s 60th anniversary.

NZRDA aims to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for people who are experiencing disability, or who have specific challenges or needs, through interaction with horses. NZRDA caters to around 3,000 riders annually – eighty per cent being children or teenagers.
