Registered Horse Handlers

Please note: the following people have registered with KHH to handle horses for those adopting horses from the muster. They have passed our property inspection and are deemed to have suitable facilities for containing and handling wild horses straight from the muster. Each handler has been reference checked and has proven previous experience with wild Kaimanawa horses. KHH has prepared this list of professional and skilled amateur handlers for your convenience only. KHH does not endorse anyone on this list and takes no responsibility for any contract entered into with any of these individuals.

All negotiations regarding handling horses are strictly between the handler and the client (the person adopting the horse). Each handler has their own way of handling wild horses and their own cost structures. We strongly recommend that you research any handler you consider using for the purpose of handling your wild horse, whether they be on this list or otherwise. You’re not obliged to use a handler from this list and are free to use any handler you wish as long as their facilities meet the KHH criteria for a suitable property for wild horses.
