Mr Lennon has had a collection tin going to support the new branch, which will call the new Karinya Equestrian Centre home.
He pledged to match the collection with his own money, with the result being that the fledgling RDA branch will be able to buy a new iPad.
�We chose the iPad because it is transferable, so if someone can�t attend a meeting another club member can use it,� secretary Julie Di Florio said.
�It will be so much easier now – there are apps for lesson scheduling, for billing and all sorts of things.�
The new RDA will differ slightly from other branches in that it will �borrow� horses from local owners for lessons instead of keeping its own mounts.
Anyone wanting to get involved when the group opens officially should register interest with Ms Di Florio on 0409 590 993.
