Interview: Kelly Wilson Stallion Challenges

Liam Butler

Liam has been reviewing books, movies and music for a bit of light relief since his student days.

Kelly you and your sisters have trained 10 wild horses for competition in the first national Stallion Challengesthrough to the Horse of the Year.  At the same time you have helped New Zealanders gain a deeper respect for these horses.  What have you learnt along the way about the Kaimanawa horses that makes them so captivating?

 We saved 10 horses from the 2014 muster, five of which were trained for the Stallion Challenges. Our work with wild horses has certainly been life changing, improving not only our horsemanship skills, but also evolving our lives in ways we couldn’t have foreseen.

I think the most remarkable thing about the Kaimanawas is how honest they are – when you are working with a previously untouched horse it’s a really humbling experience and you learn so much about horses, and also yourself. I am a better person for it.

About Kelly Wilson

Born in Whangamata, Kelly Wilson relocated to Northland with her family at the age of five. Having grown up around horses, she competed in show jumping to Pony Grand Prix level, before focusing on her creative talents. She won a scholarship to Auckland University of Technology and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Graphic Design, minoring in Photography.

From the author of the bestselling book For the Love of Horses, comes an epic new journey to rescue wild Kaimanawa horses from the biennial cull. 

Follow television stars Vicki, Kelly and Amanda Wilson on their quest to train 10 wild, difficult and sometimes dangerous Kaimanawas for competition in the first national Stallion Challenges. 
Can the Wilsons change these horses' fate? Share the heartbreak, the pain, the elation and the success as they take on their greatest challenge yet. - See more at: http://www.randomhouse.co.nz/books/kelly-wilson/stallion-challenges-9781775538349.aspx#sthash.r4yEZrnG.dpuf
