It's Easy to Become a Participant

Once you have made contact with Sunshine Coast RDA, you will be invited to come to the centre to have a look around and meet our team.

You will need to complete an initial assessment to see if participation in our programs will be beneficial for you and if there are vacancies in a suitable program for you.
The Initial Assessment is a chat and does not involve any horse interaction.

The Initial Assessment requires a booking to be made. This can be done by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. There is a $25 fee for the Initial Assessment.
You may go on a waiting list, depending on the program best suited for you.

Once a position has been made available, there are Membership with Insurance Liability Waiver, a Service Agreement and perhaps Medical forms that will need to be completed prior to participation. The Medical forms will need to be completed by your GP or Specialist if you have a physical disability.

Payment of Membership and Participation Fees will also need to be completed prior to participating in SCRDA programs.

The paper version of the Membership form and Liability Waiver form for 2023 is here.
There is also an online fillable Membership form.
Please print both pages, back-to-back on one sheet of paper and return to the Office.

You can find the Medical form here.
