Welcome to Distance Riding New Zealand (DRNZ)

Distance Riding New Zealand offers riding events for all levels from grassroots to marathon distances which can be enjoyed at any age, with any horse, over some spectacular country.

We offer both Ride to Time (RTT) events as well as Enduro events. Check out the "About Us" tab for more information on these different event types.

We promote a welcoming, inclusive and fun culture where the welfare of the horse is paramount. We offer a challenge for those that are looking for it, as well as a fun day out for those who just want to enjoy riding their horse with friends.

We want everyone to enjoy being part of our sport as we believe there is no better way to see the New Zealand countryside than on the back of a horse.

We look forward to seeing you out on the trails at a Distance Riding NZ event soon.
