We are well on our way to our target of $75,000 by the end of the year, but we are not there yet. The needs of horses and farm maintenance are a constant financial demand while recent riding income has been patchy at best, we still need lots of help to get to our target. If you can, please keep on supporting us, our Givealittle page is the easiest way to do that.

We are delighted that once again we will hold the annual Horses Birthday at 11am on Saturday (the perfect day!!) 1 August, giving the community the opportunity to see their work in action. Some riders will demonstrate their riding skills (in some cases this is the only outdoor sport they can participate in), there will be prizegiving and a light lunch. Please support this wonderful institution and help us get rid of the waiting list with donations for much needed additional horses. If you can't come on the day, you can always donate through our Givealittle page - Whakatu RDA

This great team did an awesome job of serving up some great sizzled treats - thank you so much! If you missed the opportunity to support us then with a supper sizzled sausage, then you can always donate at any time through Givealittle. We need TWO new horses to replace an older horse and to meet demand so that we can get rid of the waiting list.
