The New Zealand Puhinui Three-Day

This article was originally published on Eventing Nation

The Puhinui International Three Day Event took place this last weekend in hot and sunny New Zealand.  Running a CCI ***, **, and *, a pre-novice three day event, a novice and pre-novice and one day event as well as several Open Hunter Derby classes the competition attracted most of New Zealand’s top riders, as well as Chairman of the Selectors Andrew Scott, and High Performance Team Leader Erik Duvander. 

For full results and more about the event please see their website [Latest Results].  But we can thank Russell Hall, website and facility manager at Clifton Eventing, and also a video genius for bringing us all the action here on EN.  Please enjoy this short overview of the event courtesy of Russell’s hard work over the weekend;  it’s almost as good as being there, and certainly makes me think it’s another event I have to visit, ASAP! Especially as I compare the weather forecasts, why on earth am I still here? 
Tomorrow we will be bringing you some insights from Erik Duvander, HIgh Performance Team Leader, as he reflects on the Kiwi’s performance at WEG, their young squad competing at Puhunui, and of course, the legend that is Mark Todd. 
A massive thank you to Russell for all his help with this collaboration, and to Clifton Eventing, Lizzie Brown, and Jock Paget.  Click here for the Clifton Eventers’ site.  Thank you for watching, I hope you enjoyed it, and Go Eventing Down Under!
