Narrow escape for all as seven horses career down Waikato highway.

Hartstone and Ali Baba set to entertain

Jody Hartstone will ride Ali Baba at Riding With The Stars in February at Claudelands Arena.

Riding With The Stars should be the perfect arena for Jody Hartstone's stallion.

Former racehorse will leave great legacy behind

Denise Jeffcoat said Stylish Lass was always exciting to watch.

Long, curled whiskers poke out of her wrinkled muzzle, and her back is swayed with age. It is hard to believe, but Stylish Lass was once a brilliant racehorse.

Riders sharpen their competitive edge

Renee Faulkner and Rubin tackle a trakehner under the guidance of Jock Paget.

Competition season is in full swing and Rebekah van Tiel proved her class when she took on one of New Zealand's top showjumpers. Renee Faulkner had a lesson with eventer Jock Paget, and Rachel Stock's horse has been shod with new shoes.

Le Couteur aims to ride high

Sigourney Le Couteur and Harvey, near Cromwell.

It's a good thing para-rider Sigourney Le Couteur has a steely determination and fierce competitive spirit as there are plenty of obstacles in her way.
