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.
