Balmoral Sensation - Owned by Johnstone Family

 

Clarke Johnstone grew up on a sheep and cattle farm in Otago. It is thanks to his sister that he now has a career in equestrian – at 12 she convinced him to ride with her.

After completing a Bachelor of Commerce at Otago University in 2008 he headed to the North Island to pursue eventing full time.

He has had plenty of success on and offshore and at 19 was the youngest-ever winner of an eventing World Cup Qualifier.
