Tauranga RDA Community Outreach Programme

The RDA's mini ponies, Bikki and Lilly, do regular visits to retirement and nursing home residents offering equine therapy, which is based around beneficial interaction between people and horses.

This type of programme has shown to produce great benefits for those who are living often quite lonely lives as they grow older. The programme has become very popular with nursing home activity coordinators who have indicated that the visits generate enormous response from residents, often from individuals who generally keep to themselves but on these occasions become very animated and chatty.

The programme is sponsored by Legacy Trust. If anyone is interested in having our ponies visit their nursing or retirement home please contact us.
