Life on the trail in New Zealand

6 12 2006

Keith Roberts’ partner told him he was spending more time with his horse than her and that he should leave. He did, and for the past six years Keith, 58 and his faithful Connemara/Clydesdale Zara, 26, have wandered New Zealand roads. He’s owned Zara for 21 years.

“I sold my house in Auckland, got rid of all my belongings and hit the road, it was an enormous relief,” he said.

His two adult daughters told him to “go for it”.

The length and breadth of New Zealand has been travelled 2½ times since November 2000.

Doesn’t she look great for 26? I’d love to ride through New Zealand myself someday.
