Arundel Park Riding for Disabled was formed in 1981 under the name Gold Coast and Hinterland Riding School for the Disabled Association Incorporated, to provide a horse riding service for children and adults with a disability.
Horse riding is a pleasurable form of physical exercise which has proven to therapeutically assist people with a wide range of disabilities.

Here at Arundel Park we offer a variety of programs to allow each and every rider the opportunity to grow and develop to the best of their ability.

Independent Rider Program
Alongside our RDA lessons our coaches have developed riding programs for children and adults to be included in our programs and skill development in equestrian sport.
Ground Skills Program
The program has been very beneficial to those that require support in their community involvement and wish to participate in an equestrian activity without having to ride.
Carriage Driving Program
Carriage driving is open to anyone but especially to those who can no longer ride or prefer a different type of equestrian challenge.
Ready Set Trot
Ready Set Trot is a national initiative which aims to get more kids active and having fun with horses.
The horse’s unique, multi-dimensional movement is utilised as a therapeutic tool and implemented according to the individual needs and goals of the client.
