Kaimanawa Heritage Horses is dedicated to the care and protection of Kaimanawa horses in both the wild and domestic environments.

  Auckland Animal Welfare

Every two years the population of wild Kaimanawa horses is reduced to 300 by aerial mustering. We search for suitable homes for these horses, preventing all that we can from being sent to slaughter. We also support the people who have bought the horses, and the horses themselves, through our welfare team and area representatives.

Since the musters began in the 1990s we have rehomed hundreds of Kaimanawa horses. In 2012 we helped save 119 of the 191 horses that were mustered, and in 2014 homes were found for 147 horses. We organise an annual show where people can show their amazing Kaimanawas; publish a magazine; organise trips to see the wild horses; and promote the Kaimanawa horses as great all-round riding ponies.

Latest update

Thank you  7 April 2016

Thank you everyone for your support. Applications for horses have now closed, and we had a rush of applicants towards the end - so things are looking good for the upcoming muster.

We're busy sorting through applications and performing home and reference checks, and doing final preparations for the muster at the end of the month.

Make sure you follow our facebook page www.facebook.com/KaimanawaHeritageHorses where you'll be able to see updates about the horses you've helped support. We also hope to get pictures and stories from new Kaimanawa owners, so there will be plenty to see.

Your donations will help us care for any extra horses we take from the muster, and in time, once they're ready, we will find new homes for them.
