The 2013 event was fantastic. We had a wonderful time hosting a number of very successful eventers including World No 1 Andrew Nicholson and fellow Olympic Champion Blyth Tait. The organising committee was delighted to receive the following feedback from some riders who thought so too:

"Hi Susan,
Can you please pass on Francesca and my thanks and congratulations to the Puhinui 3 day committee.
Despite the weather and the amazing mud it created everything seem to run on schedule with any changes well communicated to riders in good time. It must make your jobs so much more difficult when the weather doesn't co-operate but everyone kept in good spirits and got on with the job. The grounds looked fantastic and we can't wait to see the footage from the event.Thanks to everyone for their hard work and commitment to making this pinnacle event such a success.  We hope the clean-up wasn't too ghastly!
All the best and thanks again.
Melissa and Francesca. "
