Donate to RDAQ

The purpose of Riding for Disabled Association of Queensland (RDAQ) is to assist people with disabilities to access the benefits that can be accrued from contact with horses, participation in horse riding and involvement in physical activity, sports, recreation and social interaction programs.

RDAQ is the State Administrative and Coaching Regulatory body for regional RDA centres throughout Queensland. Its role is to support all RDA centres through the ongoing education of general and specialised coaching as well as upskilling volunteers. RDAQ assists with and directs establishment of new centres.

The aim of RDA is to enable more people with disabilities to have the unique experience of horse riding and for some, especially those confined to a wheelchair, the opportunity to experience carriage driving.

Help us to make their dream a reality.
