Join A Campaign

Other sport and recreation, have officially recognised national organisations that represent them when it comes to transport, safety or recreation, but we didn't. So our first step to has been to raise awareness.  Public campaigns raise awareness of recreational horse riding, and our issues.  

Join a campaign now!

If you're on social media, help by sharing campaign posts (ours or other rider's)       Follow us on Twitter @nzhorsenetwork       Find us on Facebook

Sign the Petition Now!

We have a petition to improve road safety for horse riders. Sign it, share it!
  • Road Safety Petition Launched This petition was originally started when Karen Rutherford was severely injured, and her horse Curious George was killed in Dairy Flat, just north of Auckland.  In late 2017, the Ride for Road Safety captured media attention, and now we have the hard work of getting practical changes made to the road rules, and the legislation.  You can read, and sign the petition hereOr you may like to visit our Road Safety Website "Horse Sense on the Roads NZ'

Submit your own photo and text for #IRide by email and I will create one for you, and send you back a copy for you to use (and we'll use it too), OR create your own and use the #IRide hashtag and connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram or G+

We want as many different faces, stories, and experiences as possible; reflecting all the aspects of horse riding, and ownership in New Zealand.

You can also download these graphics to use as the intro to a submission, or in an email, or letter to your local Council, or MP.  If you're on Facebook, or other Social media - share them with others, especially on the Social Media sites of Councils, or local MPS (they all have them).  And of course, you can help us create more by participating in the I Ride campaign.

  • Join these riders, and tell us (and the rest of New Zealand) why you ride
