Call for Roger McGill memorial trophy nominations...
This beautiful trophy was donated by Frith Daniels in memory of Roger and his horse Jaffa who were tragically killed by a lightening strike on 15 April 2008. For those of you who didn't have the privilege of knowing Roger, he was extremely passionate about hunting and his horses, and a day out with mates enjoying the sport. This trophy is awarded at the AGM (23 October this year) to the horse and riding member combination that has shown the most passion for hunting throughout the season.
Email your nomination including a paragraph or two of why you think the person (and steed) you are nominating should be awarded the trophy to: email@example.com by 20 October 2019. Nominees must be full financial members.
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 at Huapai Pony Club 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 only, gating (no jumping) and jumping. The puppy hunt information is below. Masters Briefing (unmounted) at 9.30am. Please be ready to ride off immediately after.
For adult cappers,
if you are a paid up member of another hunt and have paid your NZHA levy, the cost for the day is just $25,
for all others $40 plus the $13 NZHA levy (total $53).
For child cappers, the cost for the day is $25 plus the $13 NZHA levy (total $38) (full membership with WH is only $150 plus $25 NZHA levy (total $175)).
NB: the NZHA levy is a one off payment at your first hunt. You will not be asked to pay it twice.
