Who We Are

The Wild Horse Project, which was started in 2010, has evolved into a charitable trust since June 2023. It was initially established to document and share the journey of Kaimanawa horses as they transitioned from wild to tame, while also sharing valuable insights into horse behavior and training techniques. The project aimed to demonstrate that wild stallions, previously considered dangerous and untrainable, could thrive as domestic horses.

Today, The Wild Horse Project works with a diverse range of wild horses, including mares, stallions, foals, and everything in between, sourced from both the Kaimanawa Ranges and the Far North. The trust's mission is to rescue and rehabilitate as many horses as possible, often participating in mustering activities, with up to 50 wild horses being cared for annually.

Every year the Wild Horse Project helps to home, tame, and prepare wild horses for domestic life. 

Without the support from the public to help cover expenses like veterinary bills, hay bills, and transport this would not be possible.

The Wild Horse Project takes on anywhere from 20-50 horses a year and each horse costs between $1000-3000 to prepare for domestic life. 

The Wild Horse Project is responsible for rehoming many wild horses in New Zealand.

Both from the Kaimanawa Ranges and the Far North. As such we often have horses for sale. Here is a selection of what we have available at the moment.

If you're interested in any of the horses listed below please contact us for more info.

Every Little Bit Counts

What Sets Us Apart

We are here to help the wild horses as they start this new chapter of their lives as domestic horses. However, we can't do this without the financial support of people like you. The number of wild horses in our care fluctuates from 10 - 50 at any one time. Every horse here needs feeding, in the form of hay bale age and hard feed daily, worming, farrier, and veterinary care. For stallions, there is the cost of castrations, and we often have mares and foals in need of emergency or specialised care.

This process is even harder in winter months when horses come to us skinny, malnourished, and in need of extra feeding throughout wet winter months. Where possible we try to keep herds together through the taming process. This helps them stay settled, happy, and with family bonds intact as they transition to domestic life. Your donations help us care for the wild horses at times when they need it most.
