Hutt Valley Riding for the Disabled

Hutt Valley Riding for the Disabled provides therapeutic riding programmes for people in the Hutt Valley with physical, emotional and social challenges, in order to foster increased ability, independence and self-esteem.  Together, with our qualified Coaches, trained Volunteers, and amazing horses we make an important contribution ensuring that positive outcomes are achieved  enabling our Riders to carry these into every aspect of their lives.

We offer three core riding programmes:

  1. Therapy
  2. Education
  3. Sport & Recreation

Whilst a Rider’s initial goal may be therapy, in addition, we incorporate education and recreational elements into our RDA sessions. Each Rider has their own individualised goal-based programme,  which meets their specific needs. Riders may move between the programmes if our Coaches feel it would be beneficial to the Rider.
