You can help us in several ways, by volunteering a few hours to work with our horses or a donation to help with the running costs. 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.

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.
