Help the NZ Horse Ambulance Trust to raise funds for a tenth equine ambulance that will cover the South Auckland area. We can then attend every horse event in New Zealand and help to protect the health and welfare of our equine athletes.

Each purpose built horse ambulance costs $95,000 to build and in addition requires a towing vehicle = a total of $150,000. Together with our National Equine Welfare Partners and supporters we have raised funds for nine horse ambulances.

Will you help #CompleteTheFleet and raise the funds needed for no. 10?

The equine ambulances have a full hydraulic suspension system, which means they can be dropped to the ground and raised again. This is important as it means when a horse is injured there is far less stress on the animal than having to walk up or down a ramp.

The units have been designed by equine veterinary surgeons and supported by the NZ Veterinary Association.

The NZ Horse Ambulance Trust is a registered charity (Charities Services no. CC53589) and donors are eligible for a tax credit.

About us

The New Zealand Horse Ambulance Trust was established in 2016 for the purpose of funding, procuring and operating a national fleet of horse ambulances. We invite you to join the mission and support our activities that protect and promote equine welfare.

Use of funds

The funds will be used for the construction of a horse ambulance and purchase of a tow vehicle.

She's apples!

The live auction has raised over $17,000 towards our fundraising target so we are officially at the half way mark.

The Hugh Bowman/Winx memorabilia donated by Boys Get Paid went for $4,600, and the most hotly contested celebrity lot was for dinner with Danielle Johnson and Samantha Collett at Osteria in Matamata, which reached $3,200.

Thanks to Andrew Lacy of the NZ Jockeys' Assn and the jockeys who were so willing to be involved.

Happy Easter x
