About WEC

Aims and Objectives:-

The Waikato Combined Equestrian Group Incorporated was established in 1986. We lease approximately 45ha from the Hamilton City Council and are a not-for-profit organisation run by a Committee of volunteers registered with the Charities Commission. We have a Constitution which we abide by and run under the Rules and Regulations of “Equestrian Sport New Zealand”.

Our aims and objectives are:

  • To continue to develop and establish an equestrian facility for the community.
  • To promote equestrian excellence.
  • To provide services and facilities for a wide range of equestrian interests.
  • To provide a place of learning where people can experience equestrian activities.
  • To promote recognised equestrian interests within the region.

We are situated on Pukete Road, in Hamilton within the Pukete Farm Park. The Farm Park is under the Archaeological and Environment Protection and we have a 20 year lease in place.

We are supported by a large number of volunteers who help run events, practice days and clinics for the riding community. We attract riders and enthusiasts through the Waikato region and all over the North Island.

Based at the facility are a number of Affiliated Groups – Waikato Western Riding, St Andrews Koromatua Branch of Hamilton Pony Club, Ngaruawahia Pony Club, HORSE Club, Dressage Waikato and the Hamilton Group Riding for the Disabled to name a few.

We also have an established Riding School which caters for keen horse lovers that either cannot afford their own horse/pony or do not have the time to look after one, but still have the desire to learn the art of riding.
