APRDA have various breeds of ponies and horses with both mares and geldings, each having a distinct personality. The horses assist various levels of riders from one on one support at a controlled walk to 20 metre canter circles, this is what makes our horses so uniquely special. Horse training is essential and our coaches take great care in selecting just the right horses for our various programs. When selecting new horses we ensure quarantine and vet checks are completed first, then the horse goes through a trial and training period before they are accepted into programs. The well-being of our horse is paramount so weight limits and workloads are regularly reviewed.
Our Herd of Horses and Ponies are the heroes at Arundel Park, they create bonds with all who come in contact with them.
