****************NITE 2020***************

For NITE 2020, our club is running this event at Foxton Racecourse (Jan 4/5)!!  This will be our first attempt at running NITE, so all hands on deck required.  We are currently having sub-committee meetings to begin organisation.  We would also love our club to enter at least two teams.  Please have a think about organising a team (4-6 members in each team).  If you need more information contact the club secretary at

Please clean up after your horses!

A couple of our riding club members have noticed recently people not cleaning up after their horses in public places (not necessarily club members).  As a club we urge riders to pick up all of their horse poo at parking areas around their floats and trucks eg at beach entrances and trail riding parking areas.  As riders we shares these areas with many other users and wish to continue to do so, and leaving a mess behind that is easily cleaned up certainly doesn’t help with our cause.
