Kihikihi Horse Trials

In April I headed to New Zealand for the Kihikihi Horse Trials, this was my first trip to NZ and my brother Michael came along for the ride. I had a busy trip as my primary reason to be in Kihikihi was to be upgrade my training as a Technical Delegate in Eventing.

Over the weekend I was taking part in the training course during most of the day, plus I was writing for An Eventful Life, working with the wonderful Libby Law as my photographer. In addition I was also doing a daily story for Eventing Nation, where I was both writing and shooting.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


It was a busy weekend, most days were 5am til 10pm. I’m afraid I wasn’t much company for Michael who managed to read a couple of books. Mick got some great video on cross country day as Libby let him tag along with her so his first ever day watching XC was inside the ropes standing besides Libby.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here is my favourite of Mick’s videos on XC, a funny moment.

Until next time, yours in Eventing.
