RDAQ is proud to announce that they are opening a new RDA Centre on the grounds of the Hendra Pony Club Inc., 695 Nudgee Road, Northgate. It is to be called Gateway RDA, and will be the only affiliated RDA Centre in the Brisbane City Council Region. The location is perfect, close to the Airport and the M1 is the Eastern Boundary to the property providing easy access from all directions.
Hendra Pony Club has generously agreed to sub-lease part of its grounds to RDAQ and the lease has been signed. We wish to thank the Hendra Pony Club Committee and Members for their cooperation during negotiations.
RDAQ intends to move the State Office from its present location at Burpengary, to the Gateway RDA Centre. Funding applications have already been submitted to the relevant bodies and work on the grounds, arena and buildings will commence as funding is received. There is an arena in place that has generously been given to us to use, so that we can get started asap.
There is an enormous amount of work to do before the first session is held for Riders. However we have set a date of 11th April for our first session. To make this happen we need to achieve the following;
1/ establish a base of volunteers
2/ establish a base of coaches
3/ establish a client base and their specific needs.
4/ establish what programs we will be capable of running initially,
5/ establish a stable of suitable horses
6/ establish a tack room containing what we need to match our clients to our horses and programs
7/ establish a feed room and carry the right feeds and necessary treatments for our herd.
8/ Source ongoing support and funding including sponsorships for the Centre, Events and Horses
9/ Involve the community and expand the Awareness of RDAQ.
And we have probably left out as much again. If you are INTERESTED IN JOINING IN AS A VOLUNTEER, COACH, RIDER, DONOR OR SPONSOR we would love to hear from you. Please contact Jenna in our office on 3888 5277 OR EMAIL email@example.com .
Volunteers will be needed for all aspects of RDA including admin, coaching, horse maintenance and handling, side-walkers, ground maintenance etc.
