NZ Horse & Pony - - Insider's Guide -

Started in 2009 in the hope of in­spir­ing a new gen­er­a­tion of en­thu­si­as­tic race go­ers and par­tic­i­pants, South­land Kidz Kartz and Pony Trust is open to chil­dren aged 6-16. Its main ob­jec­tives are to ed­u­cate chil­dren on horse and pony care, teach them the safe and cor­rect way to drive on a trot­ting track and to de­velop a well-rounded horse per­son who may wish to fur­ther them­selves within the har­ness rac­ing in­dus­try. Kidz Kartz sup­plies the ponies, pony har­ness and safety equip­ment. No horse ex­pe­ri­ence is needed, just an in­ter­est. Thanks to the gen­eros­ity of spon­sors and har­ness rac­ing fra­ter­nity in gen­eral, South­land Kidz Kartz has gone from strength to strength. It runs weekly club nights on Wed­nes­days dur­ing the sum­mer terms at Wyn­d­ham from 6-8pm. Check out Kidz Kartz South­land’s Face­book page or con­tact Ja­nine Heads on 027 2215075.
