Long Term Plans set the budget for your Council for the next 10 years. If you want safe riding in parks, on bridleways or along your rural roads you must make sure that your voice is heard in your Long Term Plan.
No matter whether you are a competitive rider, breed horses, run an equine business or just enjoy recreational riding.
We all need to work together to ensure the future of our wonderful sport, and the heritage of New Zealand's horse.
