Frequently Asked Questions   

Our aim is to build a strong, active horse community where we help each other to createprotect and promote access for horse riding. 

We create, and publish information for all New Zealanders about the equine community, and provide maps and resources for the equestrian community.  We protect, and promote horse riding areas, and the recreational horse sector.

What we do, and what you can do too!

Who Are We?

Ordinary horse people, who care about public access, safety for horse riders, and getting more recreational riding. 

We want to create a network of equestrians that care about where they ride; horse people who are prepared to act to gain more access, protect existing trails, and stand up for horse riders.  

We welcome all 'equines' including donkeys and mules, and all equine people whether you own, drive or ride. 

Our Objectives:


We build new trails, and gain access to parks, unformed legal roads and trails.
We research and publish information on the equine sector and equestrian community.


We (help local groups) protect horse riding trails, and equestrian resources. We make submissions to support horse riding, horse keeping, and equine businesses across the nation. 


We provide information on places to ride, through our website NZ Bridleways. 

We also spend a great deal of time educating Councils and Agencies (such as DOC) on the importance of the horse to our economy, and history, and the level of demand for recreation.
