Thank you for all the work you do with these horses
24 Dec 2012
About the cause:
We have been asked to save a 12yr old unhandled Kaimanawa stallion from slaughter. After working with 11 wild horses over the past 6 months we know how much time and money goes into taming them and anticipate it will take at least 5 months to have him suitable to be ridden and handled by other people.
Due to our success rehoming 11 wild horses from the 2012 muster (including the 17yr old stallion 'Major KH') we have gained a reputation for working with wild adult stallions and were asked by KHH if we would save Sergeant KH from slaughter. See photos to see the progress of the 11 wild Kaimanawa horses we rehomed in June.
WIND EATERS Three sisters' journey to save New Zealand's wild horses. Copyright 2012, a Showtym Films production. Wind Eaters follows the 11 wild horses that were re-homed to the Wilson sisters, of Showtym Sport Horses, during the June 2012 muster. This tell-all-documentary showcases their inspiring transition to domesticated life under the guidance of three of New Zealand's most prominent and popular show jumping riders. Vicki (25yrs), Kelly (23yrs) and Amanda (19yrs) show jump up to Grand Prix level and are committed to promote the Kaimanawas as performance ponies. It is their hope that the publicity raises awareness so that less horses are slaughtered during the bi-annual musters. The journey is ongoing and filming is still underway but we hope you enjoy this teaser and look forward to releasing the documentary in 2013.
Sergeant will be arriving on Monday or Tueday
Just heard that he will be arriving early next week so are very excited for him to arrive!
