About SARDA Durban

In riding a horse, freedom and independence become a reality…

SARDA Durban was established in 1980 and has been in operation since 2007 at the beautiful countryside farm of Assagay at Ridegetop Equestrian Centre, 8 Key Ridge Road, Assagay, KwaZulu Natal.

Our vision is to improve the quality of life for children with special needs through the physical, cognitive, social and emotional benefits associated with therapeutic horse riding.


Our Mission Statement

A NPO providing free therapeutic horse riding to organisations, for children with special needs, from various schools in the greater Durban area. We aim to maintain a high standard of therapeutic horse riding by providing qualification opportunities and training to instructors and volunteers.

7.5% of South Africans have a disability, that’s 2.9 million South African people.

SARDA Durban provides a unique experience for children with special needs to have fun, enjoy themselves and improve their way of life through ”Therapy in Motion”
