Sandra brought home the ribbons
Wairakaia Station farmer Sandra Faulkner from Muriwai and her 20-year-old gelding Merchiston Barnaby competed in the New Zealand Equestrian Pleasure Horse classes at the Horse of the Year Show in Hastings and came home with ribbons.
They finished second and fifth in two of the classes.
“Just to ride in that sort of company is a huge achievement for me,” Sandra said.
“. . . and I am still slightly overwhelmed to be honest. I’m thrilled.”
