Identified as a breed with distinct and unique characteristics, the Kaimanawa horse has proved to be a great all round riding pony.

After several days delay due to the weather, the muster is now finished, and the horses are arriving at their new homes.
This muster DoC brought in 172 horses, and homes were found for 157. At the previous muster in 2012, 191 horses were brought in and 119 found homes, so this year has been a great improvement.
Kaimanawa Heritage Horses would like to thank everyone who has been involved, the people who spread the word about the muster, all our generous donors and sponsors, and everyone who applied to get a horse.
The next muster will be taking place in 2016. Over the next year we will be running the Kaimanawa Stallion Challenges, with selected trainers showing us what they can do with their wild Kaimanawas, and competing at Equidays 2014, and Horse of the Year 2015. You can read more about the Stallion Challenges here, and find links to where you can read more about the trainers and see what they are doing.
