Lor­raine says show­ing has got too se­ri­ous. “It’s about ap­pre­ci­at­ing that you have done all the work on your horses and get­ting a good per­for­mance on the day. Get­ting a rib­bon is a thrill and a bonus on show day. Go­ing to the shows is a priv­i­lege and proof of all your work, as well as the chance to be the best turned-out, of course!”

“My horses are my ther­apy and help me cope with the tri­als that life presents. It helps to learn to ac­cept your life as it is, and just never give up!”

Lor­raine has much ad­mi­ra­tion for show­ing leg­end, Betty Len­nard of Te Aroha, who was still rid­ing in the show ring in her 70s.
