The sight of large amounts of horse poo in the Orewa Reserve car park and reserve has lead Maygrove resident Jill Jeffs and others to seek clarification of the rules around horses on beaches.

Jill says she is not against people riding on the beach, but wants to ensure that horse owners clean up after their animals.

Council’s bylaws and compliance manager, Max Wilde, says there are clearly stated guidelines for responsible horse riding on Auckland Council’s website.

These include cleaning up horse manure and giving other beach users plenty of space.

He says Council follows a graduated enforcement policy that focuses on achieving compliance through advice and education.

Beach wardens are no longer used.

“If there were repeated complaints about breaches of this bylaw on Orewa Beach, Council would carry out targeted proactive patrols,” he says.
