It is their only South Island stop on their New Zealand visit.

There will also be an opportunity for photos and autograph signing (make sure you bring something along to get signed), and the opportunity to mix and mingle over a cuppa before the night concludes.

This amazing opportunity had come about through the outstanding generosity of Tim and Jonelle making their time available to the IDHS of NZ to raise funds for the society, in their only South Island appearance this trip home to NZ.

Tim has a long-standing association with Irish horses, growing up in Oxford, where his parents, Colin and Raewyn ran Croftlea Stud. They stood well known Irish stallions including Kingcroft Wicklow, Nikomar and Coalman’s Touch, and played an important role in the IDHS of NZ, with Colin being president for several years. Tim continues to ride several horses carrying Irish blood at the top level in the UK.

An event not to be missed!!
