All NZ Riding for the Disabled Groups must meet or exceed the standards included in the ‘Code of Recommendations and Minimum standards for the Welfare of Horses’ published by the Ministry for Primary Industries.

NZ RDA also have their own code of conduct each affiliated group must abide by.

We are required to have weight limits for each of our horses and any rider over 80kg will need to be assessed by the group prior to acceptance and if accepted, it will be with caution.  At any stage we have the right to discontinue a rider if we no longer have a horse suitable or capable for the rider.
