Drive Carriage with RDA SA

Horses and wheels

Some RDA SA centres provide carriage driving. It is particularly beneficial for people for whom horse riding is not advisable; for example, people with fragile bones, severe arthritis.

Carriages are specially designed (and locally made) to accommodate wheelchairs.

A volunteer can apply to become an RDA qualified Whip (driver).  The Whip is responsible for all driving sessions under their supervision, just like a coach is responsible for all riding sessions under their control.  They must also have a current Senior First Aid certificate.
