As part of what we do, we work with DOC, SPCA, owners and the community to support the welfare of domestic Kaimanawa horses. We guarantee to look after every horse that comes out of the ranges into domestic life so this often means we have horses in our care.
When a horse comes into our care, they are assessed by our welfare team, and sent to the most appropriate foster carer depending on their needs. Our high needs cases are given immediate vet attention and their every need taken care of it until they are in a fit state for further assessment.
Their second assessment by the welfare team is to assess if they are likely to be suitable for re-homing, or if they are likely to become full time residents at KHH facilities. Some older horses, and those with specialist ongoing care requirements, remain with us for the rest of their lives.
For those that are deemed suitable to rehome, they will receive the training they require, have their feet and teeth done, and the colts or stallions will be gelded before they are ready to go off to their new homes.
To support the horses that are in our care, we run a sponsorship program that enables people to help a great cause and be included in their chosen horses’ journey through updates and photos.
Through donations from our members and the community, we can often save more horses
from the muster than we have homes for at the time. These horses, once handled, are also then available for sale. All proceeds go to supporting our work and enabling us to continue to assist other kaimanawa horses.
If you are interested in applying for a horse you can fill out the form and get in touch.
