AN EPIC KIWI ADVENTURE AROUND NEW ZEALAND ON HORSEBACK
Down, Across and Up is a heart warming Kiwi adventure story that follows a young couple who set out to conquer the coastline of New Zealand armed with their horses, a campervan for support, a tent and a cameraman. The journey took them over 5,000 kms through some of New Zealand's most spectacular scenery, but the going was not easy as every day brought them new challenges. However the can-do Kiwi attitude and the help of some local characters saw them through. They faced accidents, broken bones, getting lost and changes of horses and that was only the first month. Genna was an experienced horsewoman but Kerrin had never ridden before, and this was just one of the many challenges that faced them on their journey - things like lame horses, swollen rivers, human injuries, rampant cars, rampant wildlife, stubborn horses and, of course, stubborn people. But along the way Genna and Kerrin met many characters, got really close to their horses and the land, learned a lot about each other, made a documentary, wrote a book and raised over $32,000 for Canteen. A fine adventure indeed.
