Due to our success rehoming 11 wild horses from the 2012 muster (including the 17yr old stallion 'Major KH') we have gained a reputation for working with wild adult stallions and were asked by KHH if we would save Sergeant KH from slaughter. See photos to see the progress of the 11 wild Kaimanawa horses we rehomed in June.

The Wilson sisters (Keeping up with the Kaimanawas/Showtym Sport Horses) are three of New Zealand’s most prominent and popular Show Jumping riders and over the past three years they have saved almost 30 wild Kaimanawa horses from slaughter during the biennial government musters.

Defying convention, Vicki, Kelly and Amanda began working with the wild horses in the hope they could raise the profile of these magnificent animals and prove they were both trainable and talented.

Of the horses they saved there were 14 adult stallions, horses that many believed could not be safely domesticated.

Their many thousands of Facebook and Social Media followers around the world have watched with rapt attention as the Wilson girls – all aged just in their twenties – rapidly gained an international following for their incredible work with wild horses.

Funds will be paid to a verified bank account of Keeping up with the Kaimanawas (administered by Showtym Sport Horses).
