Waitemata Hunt has some events coming up so put these dates in your diary…but check the Event Calendar on FB or the WH website for possible updates or changes
The Opening Hunt on Saturday 7th March is on the Bradly and Kidd’s property located at 2191 SH16, Helensville…as you head North it is about 1.5km past Bradly Rd on the left hand side of SH16. Look for the sign.
Meet at the Woolshed 10:30am for champagne breakfast. The hounds will move off at 11:30am.
To reduce the risk of spreading mycoplasma bovis; it is important when coming onto the farmer’s property that all trucks and floats and vehicles are clean…especially the wheel arches and the horse box and all horse poo is taken away. Please make sure your boots are clean and your horses hooves are picked out before you arrive.
Weekend Hunts have a walking group, gating group and jumping group. The walking group moves off a few minutes after every one else has gone. This ensures that it is walking only.
For more information refer to the WH FB page.
We look forward to seeing you there on Saturday.
