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.
