NEW ZEALAND EQUINE ACADEMY was created as the pathway to bring passionate new talent to the industry that is our lifeblood!

A collaboration between ourselves and SKILL NEW ZEALAND LTD, it is taught with NZQA-accredited course material under the tutelage of South African-born international title-winning jockey Donavan Mansour.  

Currently in session is our first intake... eight students on their way to gaining their NZ Certificate in Equine Skills (Level 2)!

Our programs are supported by such industry professionals as breeding studs, racing stables, vets, farriers, feed providers, mental health experts, nutrition experts, champion jockeys and many, many more.
