Hi my name is Christine and I am one of the foundation members for the newly formed Summerhill Riding Club.  I am on Term 4 being the President of NZ Riding Clubs.


I am married with 4 grown up children. We live on a small lifestyle block just out of Cust.  I work fulltime for NZEI as the South Island Admin Manager.  We share our home with 3 dogs, chickens, 2 cats, 7 horses, a foal, a cockatoo and 5 turtles.


I enjoy trekking over some of the South Islands scenic terrain and meeting lots of interesting people along the way, also competing at a low level, which is what I understood Adult Riding clubs to be all about.  I do not aspire to represent this country at the Olympic games but certainly enjoy the camaraderie and friendship that comes with belonging to an adult riding club.  The social side of the club is very important to me as its fun being able to meet like minded horsey people to exchange stories and yarns with.

I am excited with the direction NZ Riding Club is heading and it has been great getting out and meeting many of you at various events.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries.  Email Christine
