Sneak preview of NZ 3DE cross-country course


Check out what’s in store at the weekend’s NRM National Three-Day-Event championships in Taupo.

Jane Thompson snapped these shots of some of the cross-country obstacles at the National Equestrian Centre, in Aratiatia.

John Nicholson has made some changes  to last year’s CCI3* and CCI2* courses, and Chris Lever  is the new designer for the CCI1* and CCN105 cross-country courses. He is a master at chainsaw sculpting, and has produced some impressive fences.

Competition at the weekend is also the culmination of all six eventing series in New Zealand.
