About Manning Great Lakes RDA

RDA is a voluntary organisation providing equine-assisted activities for people with disabilities to develop and enhance abilities through programs such as riding, dressage and carriage driving. Horses provide vital mental and physical stimulation for our disabled participants, improving their confidence, increasing their autonomy and delivering immeasurable amounts of pleasure.

Most of our disabled participants are children.

Our facility at Rainbow Flat has been in operation for over 22 years and draws disabled participants from our local community stretching from Laurieton in the north to Bulahdelah in the south and Gloucester to the west.

The facility includes: • Segregated horse paddocks • Stables and tack rooms • Assembly and mounting yards • A covered dressage arena • A covered observation area • Equipment sheds • A small building (Clubhouse) to house participants and volunteers which includes sitting area, kitchen and toilets.

Operational and maintenance funding for the facility to feed the horses, pay veterinarian bills, buy consumables etc., is derived through fundraising activities such as raffles, storefront BBQ’s, and support from events such as the biennial garden club and other local charities. We do not receive government funding.
