RDAV Colac has been operating for over 30 years and is located on an idyllic setting of rolling hills, trees and kookaburras. It is a very pleasant outlook which is great for trail rides. The centre is composed of a cheerful and dedicated group of twenty volunteers and two coaches aged 18-80 years. Colac horses are agisted at the grounds throughout the working term and during holidays go home with volunteers willing to look after them. Each year the Colac group organizes a fundraising luncheon where volunteers cook up a three course meal to make anyone smile. It is so popular that the same patrons return year after year.
Colac has sixteen clients who each ride half an hour at the cost of $2. The lesson consists of basic riding instructions and also time to play games; the aim being to improve their balance, confidence, hand eye coordination and interaction with the helpers.
