Jonelle and Tim Price (and Otis and Molly) in world domination
Jonelle Price celebrated her Badminton Horse Trials victory by celebrating with her winning horse Molly.
The 15-year-old Molly — or Classic Moet to her posh friends — is a bit of a character.
Price wrote: “Molly would, if she were a person, come from Swindon [or West Auckland for our NZ followers], be a couple of stone overweight, have several tattoos, wear a too-tight leather jacket over skintight leopard skin pants, have a boyfriend with an IQ of 10 who is a club bouncer, and four children by four different fathers.
“Molly is a legend but a kind of rock and roll one like Mick Jagger, as opposed to the princess type!”
It was an amazing performance from Motueka’s Price, who took sixth months off after giving birth to the couple’s first child Otis in August last year.
She also won at Luhmuhlen on another horse, saying the year was “beyond my wildest expectations”.
When Tim claimed the Burghley Horse
Trials prize, it gave the couple three of the sport’s top six titles for 2018.
“I’m really just trying to stay up with the missus,”
