Mark your calendars! The mega-popular Waipu in Tartan event “Northland Equestrian’s Petting Zoo” is officially returning for 2017. Not just one, but two epic days of getting up close and personal with a variety of animals, as well as entertainment for the whole family.

We will see the return of the petting zoo to 2760 State Highway 1 in Ruakaka.

This year will be even bigger and better than last years with even more animals on show and more activities.

We have a variety of breeders and enthusiastic owners attending with their animals. There will be animals like highland cattle, goats, miniature donkeys, pigs, horses, alpacas, puppies etc as well as the Northland Regional Council on pest control, a veterinarian and beekeepers. There will be bouncy castles, fun rides, face painting, pony rides, a coffee van, sausage sizzle and loads more…

Again this event will be free entry but bring lots of spare change for food, drinks and entertainment.

Last year every donation made was gifted to the Whangarei SPCA. This year all the donations will be going to the Northland Equestrian Horse Museum. We do a fast amount of work with children from CYF and Emerge Aotearoa (youth mental health) as well as provide riding lessons to special needs children from Ruakaka school every week.

As part of this work, we set up a horse museum which was built entirely by self-funding and donations of material. The museum is open to the general public 7 days a week. We organise free trips for rest homes and are working on plans to run free school excursions to educate young people and get them outside.

A great day out for the whole family on one of Northland’s best Equestrian centres!
