Wanganui Riding for the Disabled have been helping children and adults with a wide range of challenges build self-esteem, independence and abilities through interaction with horses since 1973. There are currently 12 horses and 20 volunteers working with 60 active riders to this end.
From 1980 Wanganui RDA has leased the site in Purnell Street where they built an indoor arena in 1999. 2018 onwards - Wanganui RDA are working towards purchasing the land and developing their facilities to become an Equestrian Centre for Whanganui.
Stage 1 is to raise the funds needed to purchase the land on the corner of Purnell and London Streets and rebuild the fences.
Coming to this Charity Auction is just one way you can contribute to this great project.
Expect a fun evening of entertainment, with a guest speaker, sumptuous 3 course meal (prepared by UCOL under the leadership of a celebrity chef), some drink included and a cash/eftpos bar, great music from Hot Potato, and some really exciting auction items to suit most budgets.
