Widely recognised as one of New Zealand’s top eventing talents, Christen has won many of the country’s major national titles and represented New Zealand internationally. She has what you would describe as a fairytail breeding program, with the foundation mare her 3* Allie Cat whom she rode to much success as a teenager. Christen is easy to spot out competing on her 3 beautiful horses that have inherited Allie's distinctive blonde mane and tails!
"We work hard to give our horses every chance to be the best that they can. That’s why it’s great to partner with Spurs, a business that’s committed to sourcing the best products for helping unlock each horses potential. From old favourites like Stubben, to the latest technology like Neue Schule, Spurs have us covered.”
