I was born in Warkworth and lived on a 800 acre farm at Windy Ridge before shifting to Matakana. Having grown up on a farm I have always had a love for all animals but especially horses. As teenager I went to Auckland for work. In 2007 my partner and I bought a lifestyle block up north. I had always known that i would get back to the land but only ever dreamed of owning a horse now we have 6 and 3 of those at Kaimanawa’s. Our first introduction to Kaimanawa’s was on the ranges trip in 2018 and the following year 2019 when we did the photography trip. We both have an absolute passion for these horse and their welfare.
