Kaimanawa Heritage Horses is a charitable society run by a volunteer group of passionate horse people; dedicated to the care and welfare of Kaimanawa horses both domestically and in the wild.

We are advocates for the horses and work closely with the Department of Conservation and other interested groups on the welfare and future of the Kaimanawa horses in the wild. Prior to each muster we search for suitable homes and complete home-checks to place as many horses as possible. We actively support our members and their domestic Kaimanawa horses through our Welfare team, Area Reps, magazine, education and training, Annual Shows and Ribbon Days.

Our members’ generosity, through membership and donations or sponsorship, is our primary funding source.

Kaimanawa Heritage Horses is privileged to benefit from the passion and dedication of a wonderful group of people, both as committee members and people who just like to help with a great cause. Our AGM is held in June of each year so if you would like to join the team as a committee member, then please consider coming along to the meeting.

Offers of help are always appreciated so if you feel you have the time and skills that we need to help promote Kaimanawa Horses then please get in touch.

A special thanks to our patron Elder Jenks, Ben Moores, Dani Taylor, Grace Robertson, Michele Haultain, and the many other helpers for their ongoing help assisting the committee.
