Horse Riding Assistant!

Come join our riding sessions here at Dunedin RDA.

Volunteers help setting up for the lesson (tack/props etc), assisting the riders with grooming, leading the horses during the session, sidewalking (assisting riders with their balance whilst on the horse), untacking and putting the horses away for the day all under the supervision and guidance of our amazing RDA coaches.

Horse experience is NOT necessary - All training is provided.

It's a great way to learn new skills, have fun, positively impact riders and people in need within our community and of course get lots of horsey cuddles!


  • Physically fit & healthy as leading and side walking can at times involve a large amount of walking over uneven ground
  • Committed & reliable
  • Eager to learn
  • Level-headed with a sense of fun!
  • Fully vaccinated (DRDA vaccine pass required business)
  • At least 16years of age

A Police background check is required for this role.

Time commitment

Tuesday - Friday 9am - 1pm | ideally pick one day each week :)
