Randlab Matamata Horse Trial 2017

For the second year in a row we had the pleasure of filming the Randlab Matamata Equestrian Group Horse Trial. The weather was perfect for the competitors and for us to film. We didn’t see any Hobbits though!

Horse trials are designed to test the rider and horse over three disciplines; dressage, show jumping and cross country.

The cross country course was both challenging and beautiful. Some of the jumps were really interesting and not only for the competitors but they were works of art as well.

Just like last year there was an excited buzz all over the grounds as the competitors and horses were enjoying themselves but filled with nerves too. You can experience the excitement for yourself by watching the CNC 1* and CNC 2* classes on Country TV on the 4th of April.
