Hunting - simply the most fun you and your horse will have this coming winter

Join us this winter for an experience you'll never forget - hunting throughout the Waitemata District. 

Haven't hunted before - no problem

Waitemata Hunt offer training days known as Hunt Schools. These are held in February and are specifically designed for riders and horses new to hunting.

You might also like to join us for a Puppy Hunt at the start of the season. These are a great introduction to hunting and you can move between three differently paced groups - walking and trotting only, cantering with no jumping, or cantering AND jumping. The next puppy hunt is on Sunday 25th February 2018 at Shine Road, South Head. Masters Briefing (unmounted) at 9am. Please be ready to ride off immediately after.
