We ask that all riders complete a medical consent form before they begin riding. This is to ensure that we provide the most appropriate service to our riders and do no harm. (Your local group will provide the medical consent form).
For some medical conditions, riding is not recommended. We need to be aware of contraindications or precautions and to confirm the conditions that the rider has, so that we have the information needed to keep them safe.
We have a holistic approach to the development of our riders’ goals and ride programmes. The more information we have the better it enables us to provide an appropriate programme for the individual. Health professionals can provide a range of useful information to support this.
If you are uncertain about how to fill out the medical consent form, please contact your local RDA group or NZRDA for advice.
