MAUNGATUROTO EQUESTRIAN GROUP
The equestrian group is a sub group of the Kaipara Hunt and meets once a week usually on a Wednesday at 4.30pm once daylight saving has started. This is held at the Country Club grounds to practice show jumping.
Everybody is welcome, with a charge of $10 per horse per night. Jump heights are from 50cm to 1.20m and we cater for everyone from children through to adults. This is great for getting young horses or ponies going or just growing confidence for the hunt season.
The Kaipara Hunt hunt the hare over properties from Kaiwaka to Ararua and around the Maungaturoto area. We have hunt kennels on Doctors Hill Rd where our Huntsman resides full time to look after our hounds. The hunt season runs from mid March to mid June. Everyone is welcome to join as we pride ourselves on being a friendly Hunt club.
Sunday rides are held at venues around the Kaipara from mid October.
These are open to everyone.
The cost is $10 (members) or $20 (non- members) which includes a sausage sizzle and cold drink at the end.
