Clifton Eventers – Proven Performers

New Zealand team representation

Since 2001 Clifton Eventers has had eight different horses represent New Zealand on senior teams. Seven of these eight horses were purchased by Frances Stead as green youngsters having either done no eventing at all, or at most, competed up to Novice level. Thus, with the exception of Clifton Say What, who was already Advanced level, all these horses have been developed by Clifton Eventers from green youngsters to become world-class performers.
