Rural Sports Wrap: Top NZ equestrian rider

Rural Exchange 02/12/2017

Given the soft nature of equestrian rider Clarke Johnstone, one might not guess he is one of the best of six in the world right now.

The Cambridge-based rider bagged the biggest win of his career with victory in the CCI4* (4-star) at the Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event in Adelaide.

Mr Johnstone joins Rural Exchange to discuss his big win.

“I’m really lucky to have an awesome team around me,” he says.

He was the best placed New Zealand Eventing Team member at the Rio Olympic Games 2016, finishing 6th individually.

The Rural Sports Wrap is a regular feature on REX thanks to our partners at Affco.
