Horses on Kāpiti beaches
January 21, 2020

Horses are permitted on all Kāpiti beaches with restrictions on beach urban areas during summer.
You must ride your horse in a safe and careful manner when on the beach. Keep your horse out of the dunes, as these areas are fragile and contain breeding birds and erosion-control plants.

Owners may not lead or ride their horses on the beach/foreshore in the following locations:

From 1 December to the end of daylight saving between 11am to 5pm

- From the official beach access at Jeep Road, Raumati South to the
