Help us #CompleteTheFleet

$37,665 of $80,000 goal
Given by 81 generous donors in around 10 months

Every horse deserves access to the best possible outcome if they are injured when competing.


Help the NZ Horse Ambulance Trust to raise funds for an equine ambulance that will cover the South Auckland area. We will then have the capability to 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?

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 and wellceing.

Use of funds

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