  • Petition for Road Safety      26 January 2017
    Main image

    With few or no safe off-road trails for horse riders, we are often forced to use roads where despite being legal road users we have few protections and little or no recognition.

    In response to a horrific road crash that left a well loved horse dead, and the rider severely injured we raised a petition in the hope of at least gaining the same legal protections as are available in our closest neighbour Australia.

    Horse riding, and equestrian sports have so many stereotypes and myths around them. I Ride is aimed at breaking those stereotypes - who rides, and why do they ride? Ordinary riders tell us, so that we can tell recreation managers, trail makers and others.

Jody Hartstone, International dressage rider, and The Wilson Sisters, top show jumpers and horse trainers (who you might know from TVOne's "Keeping up with the Kaimanawa's) have all lent their support to our calls for public access for horse riders.

  • NZ Horse Network supports Mahurangi Coastal Trail      03 July 2015

    As our name implies, we're a network of local individuals, and groups. We work with all sorts of groups toward a common cause, and pride ourselves on trying to find win-win solutions for improving horse riding access, and the wider community.

    We're proud to support, and be involved in the project to create a Coastal Trail that will link 3 existing Regional Parks - Sullivans Bay (Mahurangi West), Te Muri and Wenderholm.

    Te Muri has always been on the list of new parks due to include horse riding. We're hoping that our involvement with Mahurangi Action, and Regional Parks will widen that opportunity to allow beach access, and even camping as well as looking to develop trails that connect to the parks, rather than having to create enormous car parks within them. Submissions are open on Shape Auckland Feb-Mar 2016
