Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Apr 2017, 11:59 PM

RDA therapy horse Lukas got himself into an accident trying to jump into the paddock on 25/9/16. Poor Lukas was hospitalized and passed away after the surgery on 15/2/17. This campaign will remain active for the next few weeks for those who would like to donate to his memory.

Lukas was a charming, well loved and hardworking therapy horse who amazingly helped his 13-year old RDA rider Malcolm with expressing his feelings because of the relationship they have! Malcolm found out his friend Lukas was unwell, and took the initiative to write his first ever letter, which his thrilled mother shared, then leading to a kind RDA volunteer helping pass the letter on, and the rest is viral history! Read about it here:

I created this campaign to help RDA with the costs of his vet bill, which will exceed $20,000. This will help RDA Singapore continue to provide horse riding therapy free of charge for disabled children and adults in Singapore.

Thank you for your support!

About NPO

RDA is the only registered charity in Singapore which has been providing free therapeutic and rehabilitative horse-riding for children and adults with disabilities for the past 35 years.

We provide horse-riding therapy (hippotherapy) to those with special needs. Hippotherapy has helped those with physical disability like cerebral palsy with improved muscle tone and motor functions. Those with learning disability like autism have seen improved social skills and better sensory sensitivity.

As part of the therapy, we bring our riders out for walks at a nearby forested trail. For many of our riders with physical disabilities, going into a forest is impossible on a wheelchair or with a walking aid. But they can do so with ease on a horse-back.

Over the years, some of our riders have advanced beyond therapy riding to international competition level! Two of our riders, Gemma Foo and Maximillian Tan, who represented Singapore in the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Paralympics Games started their riding sessions
