Kaimanawa Heritage Horses is a charitable society run by a volunteer group of passionate horse people who are 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.
We remain thankful to our corporate sponsor Equibrew for providing all of our welfare horses and every horse mustered each year for their product, as well as Boehringer Ingelheim and Elanco for ensuring all muster horses are treated for worms once they reach their new homes. Elanco will once again be staying on as our main sponsor for the 2022 stallion challenge.
Our newest corporate sponsor Treadlite will be joining us to support our welfare horses and our 2022 Freedom to Friendship Stallion Challenge as the Teams Event sponsor.
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 May 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 the Welfare Team, Registered Handlers, Area Reps & Home Check Teams, the Muster Team, and the many other helpers for their ongoing help assisting the committee.
