About the Charity
INSPIRING HOPE & IMPROVING LIVES OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore is the only local charity which provides Therapeutic Horse-Riding and Equine-Assisted Activities for children and adults with disabilities, 100% free of charge.
Our therapy horses and ponies provide a tool for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs, in a non-clinical setting, that is fun and effective, helping the beneficiaries to function better in school/at work, at home and general daily activities, and ultimately helping to improve the quality of life for the beneficiaries and their families.
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
