The Gingerbread Horse campaign is a community-led fundraising campaign in support of Riding for the Disabled. We encourage you to register as a Gingerbread Baker, bake and decorate tasty Gingerbread Horse biscuits, then sell your biscuits to friends, family, workmates and the public. Donating the proceeds will assist us to reach more Riders and change more lives.

It's so easy to become a Gingerbread Horse Baker - register now and you'll receive a special Baking Pack which includes a free horse-shaped cookie cutter, a recipe and decoration card, bags and inserts for wrapping up your Gingerbread Horse creations and advertising posters to sell your biscuits.

You'll go into the draw to win some exciting prizes, and have your baking efforts acknowledged on our Wall of Fame and Leaderboard. It's fun and exciting and it's all for a good cause. Sign up today as a Gingerbread Horse Baker and help 'bake a difference' for RDA!

How it works: The Gingerbread Horse campaign is all about individuals, busineses, schools and other groups in the community registering as bakers, then baking and decorating Gingerbread Horse biscuits using the items provided in our Baking Pack. Then, anytime during August or soon after, bakers sell their tasty biscuits to friends, family, workmates and the general public.

The funds raised from these sales are banked with NZRDA and then used to support local RDA Groups.

Just follow these five steps to support RDA as a Gingerbread Horse Baker:

To become a Gingerbread Horse Baker for RDA, please register online as either a New or Returning Individual Baker, Business Baker or School Baker. We'll send you a special Baking Pack. You can bake anytime during our August Campaign month or soon after.

Bake one batch (or many more) of tasty Gingerbread Horse biscuits using your own recipe or Jo Seagar's special biscuit recipe and horse-shaped cookie cutter provided in your Baking Pack.

After your biscuits have been baked, decorate them however you like from dipping them in melted chocolate to icing them and adding sprinkles. This is your chance to get creative! Once they're all decorated and looking great, use the provided bags, stickers and inserts to package your biscuits ready for sale.

Sell your biscuits to friends, family, workmates and the public for just $2 per biscuit. To help, we include advertising posters in your Baking Pack, as well as hints and tips on how, where and when to sell your biscuits.

Once your Gingerbread Horse biscuits sales are all complete, please donate the proceeds of your sales to NZ Riding for the Disabled by the due date. After all donations are finalised, we will announce the prize draw winners.
