Meet the People - 3
More in the series Meet the People – Ordinary and Extraordinary New Zealanders doing interesting things - Charlotte Berry, 28, has been riding horses since she was three. They’re a passion and a lifestyle that she combines in running a successful horse trekking business, Terrace Downs Equestrian just out of Christchurch. It’s the perfect lifestyle – looking after ten horses – including her favourite, Bundabank (Barney), her own competitive show-jumping horses (which only she gets to ride) and the first horse she ever owned, her 28-year-old pony, Bob who’s there for the kids. “I moved out here because I love the outdoors and it seemed like a quiet place to study for my business studies degree. Now I’ve also become a mad-keen skier.” With Mt Olympus and Craigieburn skifields only a sneeze away, Charlotte is living the dream. www.terracedowns/activities.
