Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore - Individual Rider Application Form

We offer free horse-riding therapy (hippotherapy or equine-assisted therapy) to children and adults with disabilities from all over Singapore.

The potential beneficiary (rider) must be:
• At least 6 years old or older (at point of registration).
• Weight must is BELOW 60 kg
• Must have a physical, intellectual and/or learning disability.
• Cannot be a riding student from other riding schools such as Bukit Timah Saddle Club, Turf Club Riding Centre, Singapore Polo Club...etc. If you can afford private riding lesson for your child and if your child is physically able to attend such lesson from riding schools, please DO NOT apply. Annually, we only have therapy slots for up to 350 beneficiaries. We appreciate your understanding to allow those who are less able to afford to participate in RDA's programme.

• Our individual rider programme takes place during the weekday afternoons, evening (Thursday evening) and on Saturdays.
• Each therapy session is 45 minutes long.

• After the receipt of the completed forms and reports, you or your child will be placed on the wait-list.
• Once a slot becomes available, you or your child might be invited for an assessment ride.
• Upon completion of a successful assessment, you or your child will be invited to ride with us for one term (10 weeks).
• At the end of the term, we will decide either invite you or your child back for another term or to take a break.
• As stated above, we only have slots for up to 350 beneficiaries so it will not be possible for us to keep providing the horse-riding therapy for you or your child. We will need to ask you or your child to take a break at some point.

• There is no option to save this form. So you need to complete it in one session.
