NZ horse sports discussed on radio show

December 22, 2008


The Horse Radio Network also broadcasts a weekly radio show on the 2010 World Equestrian Games, which can be heard here.

Olympic show jumper Colin McIntosh and Jim Ellis, the CEO of Equestrian Sports New Zealand, joined the Stable Scoop radio show this week to speak about the current state of equestrian sports in New Zealand.

On the show Ellis revealed that New Zealand is likely to send just one or two showjumping and dressage combinations to the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Up to three para-equestrian riders would be sent, Ellis said, as well as a "small team" of eventers.

McIntosh, now based in California, talks about his philosophy for training horses and riders, and also about daughter Samantha, who is based in Europe and has switched back to riding for New Zealand. Colin McIntosh is also a selector for New Zealand showjumping.

The Stable Scoop Radio Show is part of the Horse Radio Network and is hosted by Helena B and Glenn the Geek. In this episode they were joined in hosting duties by Robin, founder of horsetalk.co.nz.

The Stable Scoop team has a great time talking about horses and horse stuff. The show gives "the scoop" on all things horse with a different equine related topic each week.

Horsetalk also features the Horse Radio Network's World Equestrian Games 2010 radio show, which is updated weekly.
