Since that time the Centre has developed a range of services including a school for students aged 13 upwards and a full-time vocational training programme for adults 18 and over.

How can YOU help?
You can help us in several ways: by volunteering a few hours to work with our horses, a donation to help with our running costs, or by sponsoring one of our wonderful horses or ponies. Ambury Park Centre relies on the community for a large part of its funding. The school fees and riding fees paid by clients or supporting agencies who contribute around a third of our income. Similarly, government grants supply about a third, so the Board and Centre have to work hard to raise the further third needed to cover our costs every year.
Ambury Park Centre is a member of NZRDA. The core purpose of NZRDA is to provide interaction with horses to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for people experiencing disability, or who have specific challenges or needs. https://rda.org.nz/
