We believe every person involved in horse racing and equestrian sports has a responsibility for the welfare of the animals in their care. This takes priority over all other considerations. The New Zealand Horse Ambulance Trust was established in 2016 for the sole purpose of funding, procuring and operating a national fleet of horse ambulances.

Our Mission

To assist horses injured while competing at race meetings and equestrian events through the provision and operation of a national fleet of horse ambulances.

To protect the well-being of horses competing at race meetings and equestrian events in New Zealand.

To promote the animal welfare standards that must be achieved for participants to exceed their obligations under the Animal Welfare Act 1999
