During a committee meeting one winters evening the idea was tabled to sponsor some riders with kaimamawa horses. It was our hope that doing so would help bring attention to the breed and to highlight how successful and versatile the breed can be. We hope to demonstrate that they do have a place within the equestrian community competing in every field.

Criteria for becoming a sponsored rider:

  • Must be out competing in your chosen field – not necessarily at the top level.
  • You must be out having fun with your Kaimanawa.
  • Horse and rider must be registered with Kaimanawa Heritage Horses.
