How Can You Help?

The smile that riding a horse puts on the face of someone living with a disability, and the sense of achievement and self esteem gained is priceless!  But horses are not cheap - It costs approximately $3000 a year to keep each horse fit and ready for lessons every day.  ERDA runs 100% on donations and the fund raising efforts of our volunteers.  You can help put that smile on someones face today

Become an ERDA Enthusiast

Did you know that you can donate to ERDA online? And that you can set up a regular monthly gift, deducted automatically?

It’s so easy! Our online platform provides an option to make a regular monthly gift to ERDA. You simply set up an account, nominate the amount and that’s it! Gifts are then deducted from your account or credit card and you’ll receive a tax receipt with each gift so you can claim your donations on your annual tax return.

Regular giving is a great way to support us. It helps us by providing regular donations that we can count on. Imagine – if just five people gave $20 a month it would support a 12 month riding scholarship at Pegasus for a child with a disability.

Adopt a Pony

Our ponies are as unique and special as those we serve – people with a disability. Our selection process is based on health and soundness, confirmation, and a calm and intelligent temperament.

Horses and ponies with these qualities make a commendable companion, teacher and therapist for people with a disability.

It costs approximately $3,000 a year to ensure our ponies are ‘up to the job’.  It is vital to ensure they receive further education for the discipline required to successfully aid our riders; maintain their health and well-being through vet, farrier, and dental visits and ensure a calm temperament through an appropriate diet of fresh and healthy fodder.

Your adoption of a pony does this and so much more!

In recognition of your pledge to adopt a pony, we will provide opportunities for you to visit your adopted pony, a certificate of ‘adoption’ with a photo of your pony and acknowledgement of your contribution in our bi annual newsletter and on our web site and facebook page.  

For all horses available for adoption, please see our 'horses' page

If you are interested in adopting one of our horses or require further information, please contact us at [email protected] 

Support a Scholarship

You can establish a Riding Scholarship for someone with a disability.

Scholarships are designed to provide support for an individual to undertake a full-year riding program which consists of a one hour lesson each week during school term for a year. An annual Scholarship is valued at $1,800. This gives a person time to develop the skills needed to gain balance, improve posture, and increase confidence. 

ERDA  has introduced the Riding Scholarship Program in 2018  to support people with a disability who are prohibited from participating for financial reasons.  

Your support for a Riding Scholarship will provide some financial relief to a family wishing to meet the persons’ hopes of riding participation.

In recognition of your pledge to support a Scholarship, you will receive an invitation to our Annual Awards Ceremony where you will have the opportunity to meet the recipient of your Scholarship, the opportunity for you to name the Scholarship, an invitation to  tour ERDA and watch a class in action, provide a certificate of support and recognition and 

list your Scholarship in our  newsletter, on our website and facebook page.  If you would like to offer a sponsorship in 2019 please ring 0435765591 or email [email protected]

Volunteer - everyone can help

RDA Eurobodalla could not run without our awesome volunteers.  There is a way that everyone can help.  Of course we need help with preparing horses for lessons and assisting riders during lessons but there is so much more that goes on behind the scenes to keep the show on the road!  If you have skills in human resources, art and construction, accounting and management, landscaping or gardening we would love to hear from you.  Our volunteers assist by helping out at market stalls and bbqs, open days, maintaining our grounds in a safe and usable way, sourcing raffle prizes and selling tickets,  making toy ponies to sell, coordinating other volunteers and helping to maintain our records.  Go to our Committee page to see some of the achievements our volunteers have managed in 2018.

Buy an ERDA toy pony

Our lovely hand made ERDA ponies are all individual and come with their own name.  They make a great gift or keepsake and are a reminder of the ponies at ERDA.  Contact ERDA to buy a handmade pony.
