The New Zealand Horse Ambulance Trust was established in 2016 for the sole purpose of funding, procuring and operating a national fleet of horse ambulances. We believe every person involved in horse racing and equestrian sports has a responsibility for the welfare of the animals in their care. This takes priority over all other considerations. It is our vision to protect every horse in New Zealand competition; to promote and assist their wellbeing and welfare, ensuring it is the amongst the highest internationally.

Our Mission is to:

- Assist horses injured while competing at race meetings and equestrian events through the provision and operation of a national fleet of horse ambulances;

- Protect the well-being of horses competing at race meetings and equestrian events in New Zealand.

- Promote the animal welfare standards that must be achieved for participants to exceed their obligations under the Animal Welfare Act 1999.

As support for the project grew, so did the Trust’s goal from five to ten ambulances, each with 4x4 tow vehicle; six to be deployed throughout the North Island and four in the South Island at race meetings, other equine sport events, for transport of ill horses to surgery, and for assisting responders in the rescue of horses.

The New Zealand Horse Ambulance Trust is a registered charity (Charities Commission number CC53589). Individual donors can claim tax credits for their donations to us. If you or your organisation would like to become a welfare partner, please visit our website, www.horseambulancetrust.co.nz for more details.

Use of funds

The funds raised will go towards the procurement, operation and annual running costs of 10 ambulances and towing vehicles; 6 to be deployed in the North Island and 4 in the South Island. Startup cost totalling $1.2m and $30k-$50k annually.
