RDAWA has 170 horses and ponies and we could not achieve what we do without them. They provide us with the opportunity to enrich lives and develop abilities. Our horses give many years’ service and our participants and volunteers often form a special bond with them.
RDAWA is a unique service provider, in that we have the welfare of our horses to consider in our operation. The cost of keeping horses is increasing and includes:
• Purchasing or leasing costs
• Provision of Shelter
• Farrier and Veterinary costs
It costs approx $3,000pa to ensure the welfare of an RDAWA horse/pony.
