KHH has again arranged with the NZ Army to take a group into the Kaimanawa Ranges to see these fabulous horses in the Wild.

The trips will run on Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th of November.

See foals, mares, yearlings, and stallions in their family bands. See where the annual muster takes place. See spectacular scenery and learn more about how and where these horses run.

The region is normally closed to the public and we are privileged to be able to offer you this experience.

Meet by 9:00am on the day of your ticket at the car park at the rear of the National Army Museum for directions to the nearby day-carpark and tour busses. See map below for directions.

We won't be sending out tickets, so please bring a printout of your booking confirmation email with you.

For more information please email Ranges@kaimanawaheritagehorses.org or phone Kimber Brown on (09)-236-3984 or mb: 0274509047

The bus trip includes:

  • A Talk and Slideshow about safety on the base and army activities.
  • A stopover at a scenic spot with an address by a DoC representative giving details on the land and it's history.
  • Lunch at the yards where the horses are mustered, along with a short address on the muster process. N.B. you need to provide your own food and drink.
  • Merchandise will be available for sale during the lunch break (cash only), and on return to the car park (EFPOS available).
  • The bus will return to the car park late afternoon.

 

To get the most from the trip we recommend:

  • Bring warm clothes and wet-weather gear. It can also be quite windy.
  • A pair of binoculars can be a good alternative to a camera - there are many professional photographers that share their photos.
  • There is no cellphone reception in the ranges.

 

N.B. You need to bring your own food and drink.
