Riding for the Disabled

A Riding for the Disabled programme is shown in operation at Totara Park in Manukau. Riding has great therapeutic benefits for people with disabilities, helping with balance, muscle tone, perception, spatial awareness and motor skills. The organisation has also made it possible for disabled riders to become involved in equestrian sports.
