Research in RDA

Does horse riding have therapeutic benefits?  Thousands of RDA participants here in Australia and overseas can attest to the positive outcomes they see everyday.  RDA Australia accredited programs are recognised by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) under Participation in Social and Civic Activities.  RDA Programs overcome social isolation, assist in language development, interacting with other people, learning social concepts and working in teams.

Are you conducting research into the therapeutic benefits of horse riding?  Your research may be applied or scientific, quantitative or qualitative.  Through our webpage, we will assist you by providing statistics, research protocols and methodology as well as examples of previous projects.
