Benefits of riding therapy at RDA Alice Springs

-          The riding Therapy concept is to allow our riders with or without disabilities to ride and work with our very special horses with whom they create a common bond of trust. The horse has the natural power to connect, nurture and heal.

-          In our classes, through the natural therapy of the horse's movement, we are improving the riders skills. All this leads to the chance of a more independent way of life

-          All of the riding activities relate to life skills. We work closely with the children's teachers carers and parents to develop and improve learning outcomes. We do the ABC's and the 1, ,3's - spelling, counting and various other activities.

-          We develop decision making skills. We teach sharing and good sportsmanship.

-          On top of all the very important learning outcomes, we give the freedom of movement which some of or riders do not have in their normal day to day life. And it is a fun and active way of learning and improving.RDA Alice Springs is a family friendly group.
