It takes a very special horse to become an RDA horse and we are very lucky to have our incredible team.
Our herd receive hard feed at least twice a day due to not being on pasture, and have regular visits form the farrier, vet & dentist (yes, horses have to brush their teeth too!). Their continued upkeep requires volunteers attend the Centre multiple times a day to receive & distribute feeds, ensure their health, well-being and ongoing training is continued.
The annual costs of each horse is roughly $5,000 – $6,000 each year. To find out more about these expenses, or to make a donation please visit our donations page.
