Riverside Retreat - Equine Rescue and Re-homing Centre

'Trust not Trauma'

Riverside Retreat is a Equine Rescue Centre dedicated to providing a safe-haven for unwanted, dog food bound, abused, neglected or abandoned horses and rehabilitating, retraining and re-homing them into approved, experienced, long term homes. We also provide a re-homing service for racehorses who are looking for their new career after racing and owners who do not have the time, ability or knowledge to find their horse a suitable new home.

Set on 40 acres in Te Horo, Kapiti Coast, with rolling hills and flat pastures full of long old fibrous grass it’s a horse haven.  

About Us:  Amy has put her heart and soul into the planning of this rescue centre. With 15 years riding and horse experience gained through years of travel around NZ working for some of the top horsemen and women in every discipline. Add numerous qualifications, including one year’s vet nursing training and we have a recipe for a seriously talented, passionate and experienced horsewoman. Her horse loving family is a big part in building and running this rescue centre and we wouldn't be able to do it without them!

We have finally put together a place where we can do what we loves, helping horses!  Alongside us is a group of experienced, passionate and dedicated volunteers from all areas and disciplines.

Please contact us if you have or know of a horse that needs a home or some TLC.

Phone anytime (within reason please) on 0223245717 or 0278961847 or email rrequinerescue@gmail.com. Please be patient if it takes some time to get a response as we are often busy and there is only so much of us to go around! Txting is preferred to calling as we can respond when suited and sometimes it can be a while before phone answer machines are checked. Thanks!
