The New Zealand Standardbred Riding Association was formed in 1992 with the aim of encouraging and promoting the ridden Standardbred. The NZSRA tries to cater for all equine disciplines. We do this by running shows, training activities, trail riding and a variety of fun and interesting events. The NZSRA is not for profit. Membership fees and sponsorships go towards subsiding NZSRA and national events to make it affordable to enter.
Members also receive a regular newsletter that keep them informed about what the NZSRA is doing, plans for future events and educational articles. Activities that are intended to benefit riders, as well as help them with improving the performance of their horses.
Your horse must have the official Harness Racing New Zealand Freeze brand to enable you to join as a riding member of the NZSRA. For identification purposes you are encouraged to register your horse with the NZSRA. Registration also enables you to compete for the highest points gained: Showing, Trail Riding, or the most Versatile Standardbred Awards.
So there is no reason why we can't get out there and show everyone what Standardbreds can do!
