WILD MANY WILL BE SLAUGHTERED SAVE LIFE
THIS APRIL UP TO 200 KAIMANAWAS ARE DUE TO BE MUSTERED. UNLESS PEOPLE LIKE YOU OFFER TO REHOME. A PROTECT THEIR FUTURE ENRICH YOUR OWN
Are you competent to handle a wild horse?
Do you have facilities to contain it safely?
Do you have a future in mind for the horse?
If the answer is no to either of the rst two, KHH can help by referring you to a competent handler to do the initial work for you. is can help both those not experienced in handling wild horses, and those lacking the suitable facilities, as well as solving the issue of South Islanders wanting to adopt a Kaimanawa.
KHH is now dealing with some new challenges that have arisen from the recent publicity. “Many people now think that wild horses are dangerous and you need considerable fortitude to enter a yard with them,” says Simone. “But in 18 years of handling wild horses, this has never been my experience. Remember, most people aren’t receiving mature stallions from musters and they’re not under pressure to handle their horse within a certain timeframe.”
e KHH now wants to promote how the ‘everyday’ horse person can achieve great things with their Kaimanawas, so alongside this year’s Stallion Challenges for professional trainers, to be held at Equidays in October, it is launching a series of competitions for every horse homed from the 2016 muster to compete in over the following year.
