competing horses shows in her list
of major accomplishments, including

Association World Championships
and Snaffle Bit Futurity Limited
Open Championship in 2015.
“Going in to the Road to the Horse
competition, my No. 1 goal is to give
a solid representation in how you can
set up a colt for success,” says Sarah.
“I really believe that what a horse
learns first, he learns best, and that
foundation is so important for the
rest of his life. I have a lot of faith in

International show jumper and clinician Vicki Wilson is one
of New Zealand’s top horse trainers, particularly known for
working with problem horses.
Vicki and her sisters, Kelly and Amanda, have earned celebrity status through their top-rated reality TV series, “Keeping
up with the Kaimanawas.” The Kaimanawa is New Zealand’s
wild horse, similar to the American Mustang or Australia’s Brumby. The Wilson
sisters advocate for and have worked with all three types of wild horses.
Vicki is also known for her competitive edge and has won many national
titles in show jumping and show hunters. At New Zealand’s prestigious
multidiscipline Horse of the Year competition, she’s won the Lowry Medallion five times and the Nationwide Cup nine times, more than any other
rider in history.
“Being the first English trainer [at Road to the Horse] is a privilege,” says Vicki.
“At the end of the day, no matter the discipline, we are all working towards producing horses who love their work, and I’m excited to help demonstrate this.”
