Hi! We are Chris and Miriam and we created Horsesports in 2007 to provide quality affordable equestrian supplies online and in-store for everyday riding and horse care. Our equestrian supplies store sells everything from horse feed and horse gear, riding boots and casual riding wear to the latest trends in equestrian clothing for competitions – and our Auckland saddlery offers a large range of top saddle brands, and a world class saddle-fitting service through Balanced Saddle Fitting.
We bring a new dimension to the saddlery retail experience
We have, and continue to source, the best local and international lines so we can offer true variety and choice to ensure the best fit with your horse, and your budget, big or small.
The Horsesports experience is that we listen, so we really understand and can offer advice and recommendations relevant to your needs – ‘expertise without attitude’ is our motto.
Whether shopping for horse gear online or in person, you will always find us friendly and professional. We are committed to bringing a new level of service to the equestrian supplies industry, so no problem is too big or too small, and your feedback is always welcome.
Our equestrian supplies store and saddlery is handy to the southern motorway at 84 Spartan road in Takanini, Auckland. We have plenty of easy off street parking for horse trucks and floats. Pop in for a chat and see what we have. Great coffee is available next door at Sous Chef! We also serve horse riders across New Zealand via our online saddlery and through our saddle fitting clinics.
Our background means we have a genuine passion for horse riding & quality horse supplies
Horsesports is very proud to support our wonderful Sponsored Riders:
- Angela Lloyd – Eventing & Dressage
- Bernard Denton – Showjumping
- Caitlin Benzie – Dressage
- Renee Faulkner – Eventing
We have both been involved with horses, riding and competing for many years (Eventing, Dressage, Show jumping and Show Hunter). Miriam competes in ESNZ dressage and has worked as an Equine Sports Massage therapist qualified with the NZESMA. She has instructed and judged at many of the South Auckland pony clubs over the years, and is passionate about people developing skills and knowledge relating to their horse’s welfare.
Chris has been a rider since he was seven, is qualified in Advanced Equine Studies and has been involved in the equine industry all his working life. Chris competed in ESNZ Showjumping and enjoyed his time as a registered show jump course builder. Now largely riding youngsters, or helping Miriam exercise their dressage horses, his passion is saddle fitting.
As one of New Zealand’s leading saddle fitters with over 15 years’ experience his approach is that riding is a partnership, with the saddle being the connection between horse and rider. He understands how critical a saddle is in ensuring that both horse and rider are totally comfortable; to allow them to perform to their best. Chris is acknowledged as being able to achieve great results for horse and rider through his attention to detail, working with the balance of the rider and the well-being of the horse.
With many years of experience between us (including working at pre-training facilities, stud farms, as well as breeding and starting our own young horses) we and the whole Horsesports team possess broad knowledge and are not afraid to consult our expansive range of colleagues and associates to find the right information. At HorseSports we do not make anything up just to sell you a particular product.
