  Northland Volunteering Child Welfare Rehabilitation

Happy children who are learning through riding activities, to interact with adults, other riders and 'their horse', are children who will improve in their self esteem and confidence. Those with physical disabilities are often helped with their balance, hip movement, muscle control and hand-eye co-ordination. Many have behavioural problems and it is amazing how learning to respect and interact with their horse, listen to commands and having an experience

'outside the classroom' can bring improvement. All of this has immediate benefit at home and at school. In the long term the rider with improved skills has a far better prospect for interaction in the community as an adult. Feedback from caregivers/teacher aides/family tell us that riding programmes help the children to focus on their schoolwork and they are more settled both at home and at school.

More about us

The objects for which the group is established which objects are charitable and to be exercised within the Kaitaia area of New Zealand are to provide horse riding opportunities to facilitate the training and rehabilitation of disabled persons in the Kaitaia District whose physical and mental health is likely to benefit from such participation.

Use of funds

The funds will be used to cover our basic operating costs of the health and well being of our ponies, including Vet and Feeding bills, Maintaining our grounds and arena on Church Road. As we depend entirely on a Volunteers to operate, we would use the funds to advertise and train any willing volunteers. We receive no Government funding and rely on donations from individuals and organisations such as yourselves to continue our operation.
