Jonelle and Tim Price (and Otis and Molly) in world dom­i­na­tion

Herald on Sunday - - SPORT -

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,”

Tim reck­oned.
