Kaimanawa Heritage Horses

  • 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 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.

  • 2016 Muster Mares and Foals     24 March 2016
    Main image

    The muster is approaching fast and only a few applications for horses have been received by Easter.

    It is likely that some of the foals mustered this year will be too young to wean. Kaimanawa Heritage Horses would like to take care of as many of them and their mothers as we are able, until they are old enough to wean and rehome.

    Each horse will cost KHH $200 per month in feed and care. This covers things like feed, hay, wormers, dentist, farrier, vet bills, and castration if required.

    We are trying to raise funds to support these horses for at least one year at a total of $2400 per horse.

    You will be able to follow the progress of these horses and all the others under our care on our website and facebook page.

    This is a great opportunity for you to help save horses if you are not able to take one on yourself.

    For more details, email

    Let’s help save more horses!

  • 2016 Muster     16 March 2016

    The next DoC muster of Kaimanawa horses has been brought forward and we have only a few weeks to find homes for as many as we can.

    We expect DoC will be removing move than 100 horses, so we have a big job ahead of us. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in re-homing a horse from the muster, please visit our website at , email us at, or give one of our representatives a call on 09-431-6111 or 07-823-6099.

    You can still help, even if you can't rehome a horse yourself, by making a donation. Donations go towards horses in our care; supporting the domesticated Kaimanawa horses; and promoting the Kaimanawa horses.

    Thank you for your support
