Welcome to RDA Hervey Bay

The Hervey Bay riding for the disabled association was established over 25 years ago and caters for riders of various abilities in the Wide Bay area. We provide opportunities for physically or intellectually disadvantaged people of all ages to enjoy therapeutic, safe, stimulating, healthy and recreational activities.

Our facilities are well maintained and continually being upgraded with a full size outdoor sand arena, a purposely built undercover arena, an additional grassed arena for dressage and our games, bush/trail riding paddocks at the back of our property, and grazing areas for the horses.

We are grateful for our volunteers, and thank them for the heartfelt commitment to our horses and riders. We often have training opportunities for our volunteers  wishing to gain competencies, certificates and accreditation’s in our discipline.

We welcome anyone wishing to join our centre and become involved in:
