An Operational Certificate is required in order to be affiliated to NZRDA. This requires us to comply with mandatory and required standards set by NZRDA. These standards are constantly under review and are updated to come in line with the latest Health and Safety Act, the Vulnerable Persons Act and the Animal Welfare Act.

Provide interaction with horses to develop increased ability, independence and self worth for children and adults with physical, intellectual, emotional and social challenges.
Deliver safe and effective programmes to benefit more riders with a variety of needs in line with our Core Purpose.
