Blyth Tait

Blyth TaitBlyth Tait is really a no-nonsense old-fashioned horseman. No fancy theories, no wonder cures, just straightforward practical advice from a guy who has several times proven himself the best in the world, holding both the Olympic and World titles at the same time.

Representing New Zealand, Blyth saw his first taste of success at the 1990 World Equestrian Games in Stockholm, when he won Gold in both the individual and team events riding Messiah. He repeated this World Championships double Gold effort at Rome in 1998 riding Ready Teddy.
