Walk Trot Level 1 Coach
After spending two years volunteering Tiffany has stepped up into the role of Centre Manager. On the 1 st of June 2018 our last two managers sadly left us, leaving RDA short staffed and in urgent need of a centre manager. Thankfully Tiffany was already trained and signed off as an OTC coach, because of this RDA was able to continue to run. Since assuming the stressful job Tiffany has gone from strength to strength to keep RDA's doors open. From writing Grant reports to organising the opening of our new arena, Tiffany has somehow found the time to enjoy the little things including riding with our clients and still volunteers to feed during the week.
I can say without a doubt RDA Alice Springs is only stronger with our new Centre Manager.
Level One Coach/Horse Manager
Alice started full time in March 2017, coming from a station life as a child and boarding at an equestrian school from years 8 to 12, she fitted into the role well.
Alice is our Horse Manager, responsible for buying, trialing, training and sorting the exercise and feeds for all the horses. She is also the Head Coach and is responsible for making horse-rider decisions and planning the terms lessons.
OTC and Level 1 Coach and Stable hand Supervisor
Bonnie is the newest to the team, in her short time so far at RDA she has shown dedication to the job as well as understanding and sympathy for all riders. Bonnie is great with the kids and makes learning and riding a fun experience. Since starting at RDA Bonnie has bought her own horse and is enjoying the equestrians life immensely. She is the first to put her hand up to ride any difficult or cheeky horses, and is also happy to do any job either cleaning stables, equissaging horses or organising the donga.
Richard (Ricko) Issac
Our amazing stale hands are Richard and Issac.Without these people we would not be able to run at all. As well as stable duties these fellas help in lessons, fix fences, clean all water troughs, water our arena and so much more. Our RDA centre wouldn't look half as clean without these fellas and their attention to detail.
