Cruising on the Interislander

Another adventure is planned! Next Thursday at 2.25am (Blerg!) Connie, Kate and I plus some other horses and two other people are going to cross to the mainland of New Zealand and head to Christchurch for Nationals. The boat we will be on is the Arahura which is pictured above. The horses travel across in the truck in the vehicle part of the ship. Still it's pretty exciting stuff. New crowd, new venue etc.

Kate does the mighty metre the first day and then 1.10ms. Connie is in the amateur first up (Worth double series points at nationals but thats dreaming really) and then does the three day 1.10m championship. It wasn't worth throwing her in the 1.20m champs with it costing $188. I'm quite nervous about the amount of preparation, but Kate is starting to feel stronger and doesn't have a very busy show so fingers crossed it works out.


  1. Sounds like a great trip. Good luck for the comp!

  2. Wow... sounds incredible. Good luck!

  3. Wow! Like real pro show jumpers, eh? I hope you get a brilliant crossing and can sit on the back deck sipping beers while the horses snooze. Best of luck for the jumpin' too.
