Petria Haigh

Petria HaighHi, my name is Petria Haigh, 22 and I live in North Canterbury

I compete in ESNZ Endurance, I am affiliated with the Canterbury Endurance and Trail Riding Club.

My biggest career achievement is winning the 60km Junior National title in 2017. Also, winning the 60km Junior North Island title back-to-back 2016 & 2017. I have been extremely fortunate with the opportunities I have been given in Endurance. In 2019 I was invited to train/compete for an Australian Endurance Stud. This was an incredible opportunity in which I learned so much and that is why I believe I was so successful last season.

My achievements last season 2021/22. I placed in the top 3 in every endurance competition entered. Top achievements were 2nd place at the Canterbury Championship competing in 100km Senior Class and placing 3rd in New Zealand for Endurance Horse and Rider of the Year.

This season, I plan to bring through a young horse and continue to compete on my performance horse. My performance horse & I goals are to place top 3 at Canterbury Championship, Place top 3 at South Island Championship, and completion in the 160km National Championship.

My team of horses is Najah, Magic & Dobby. In my discipline, it requires the horses to have a lot of stamina. Making sure your horse is on the correct and most effective supplements is crucial for performing well in endurance. Every endurance horse needs a great electrolyte and Apple Lytes are of the highest quality. I also use, Cortaflex HA solution, More muscle pellets, So Kalm, Tye Gard, and Like Ice Natural Clay.
