About Waikato Heavy Horse Association
|The Waikato Heavy Horse Association was formed in 1979 by some older
gentlemen who had used horses all their lives and wanted to pass on
their knowledge to the young enthusiasts of the day and therefore keep
alive the heavy horse who at the time was destined to the history books!
The aim of the Waikato Heavy Horse Association Incorporated is:
The conservation of the heavy horse and the work it does.
The promotion of its use in all aspects of farm, commercial, and pleasure work.
Teaching the caring, handling, working, and the art of showing them.
To meet at demonstration days and encourage each other whilst exchanging views and information.
We hold a field day approximately
every month with activities such as ploughing, haymaking, treking,
driving, wheelwrighting, blacksmithing, showing, teaching/training days,
and anything else to do with heavy horses.
