Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore (RDA) is the only local charity with a designated Centre. (home to 20 therapy horses - our own 'fantastic beasts') which provides therapeutic horse-riding program for persons with disabilities, 100% FREE OF CHARGE. Over the years, more than 6,000 persons with disabilities benefitted from our program, improving the quality of life of the beneficiaries and their families.
We target to raise an additional $150,000 this quarter besides supporting RDA operations and program, the funds will go towards our facilities improvement ($50,000) and the acquisition of additional therapy horses ($100,000).
About the Charity
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
