Many owners register their Kaimanawa horse(s), which can be of benefit to both the owner and the horse.
With registration, there is a permanent record of your horse’s age, origin and physical description.
Only registered horses can compete in Kaimanawa classes at A & P Shows and the Kaimanawa National Horse Show.
When you register your Kaimanawa horse with Kaimanawa Heritage Horses (KHH), you are helping to keep a record of the Kaimanawa horses that are in captivity. The register also records names of Kaimanawa horses that are bred in captivity.
First cross Kaimanawa horses can also be registered.
KHH has a brand and we can supply a branding iron if you wish to brand your horse. However, branding is NOT a compulsory requirement for registering.
Many new owners of Kaimanawa horses are disappointed when they buy an unregistered Kaimanawa horse and cannot find the previous owners to prove its origin. KHH is unable to register your horse if there is no proof that it is a Kaimanawa horse.
Please think of your horse’s future and register him while you have proof of his NZ heritage origins. It can take only a few changes of ownership for the proof to be lost, if you have not registered.
