Our Story

Horse Play is a New Zealand owned, family business. We all love and appreciate the pleasure we derive from working with horses and it is because of this pleasure that we began Horse Play more than a decade ago. We are the proud owners of two Clydesdale crosses- Diesel and Bonnie.

We are very proud to be the New Zealand agents of the Best Friend® range of products with Best Friend® grazing muzzles having prevented hundreds of horses in New Zealand from suffering from founder and laminitis. The Best Friend® back pads have helped many riders around the world improve their balance and seat while here in NZ, dozens of bareback pads are being used by RDA instructors throughout the country to help disabled children enjoy and benefit from the company of horses.


After having the good fortune of watching Sir Mark Todd and the New Zealand equestrian team bring home a bronze medal at the London Olympics, we successfully explored the opportunity of representing the Mark Todd Collection in New Zealand. We are naturally very proud to be associated with such an icon as Sir Mark Todd and are equally impressed by the quality of the products in his Collection.


If there’s something you would like from Best Friend® or from the Mark Todd Collection that we currently do not have in stock, please feel free to contact us to see if we can order it in for you.


We are very proud to bring to you, horse and rider products of the highest quality and at the cutting edge of fashion and technology.
