We offer recreation within a beautiful, well-set garden and structured horse environment, inclusive of two large arenas (indoor and outdoor). With an extensive range of disciplines, there is much to choose from: Birthday parties, school holiday programmes, riding lessons, beach riding and much more. Our place is a happy place. Supporting one another and being together is our passion. Our club is a family which means everything.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
The first vaulting club was set up in New Zealand by Glenn and Lyn McIntyre in the mid-nineties, with the help of international coaches and volunteers. Catarina, “Cat” came to New Zealand in 2000 from Sweden as a coach. Cat’s skill is one of most natural horsemanship, with the education of horses her forte’, however, she found the vaulting enjoyable as it also requires extreme fitness. Now she has devoted decades to the promotion of vaulting, riding, horse education/training, and development of the club to what it is today with all the benefits.
The Kapiti Equestrian & VaultingCentre, a whånau, community centred club; provides outstanding facilities and services to the community without any funding from the government.
