Vicki Wilson Equestrian & Showjumping

“Horses are like athletes, both mentally and physically. They have to be taught how to use their bodies properly to get to the top.”

Vicki Wilson has established an international reputation in show jumping. She has her sights set on taking her horses and her team of elite riders to the top. She also mentors talented young riders to becoming future show jumping champions.

With Vicki, everything begins with the horse. Her philosophy is simple: happy horses perform better. From diet and environment to a fun and stimulating daily routine, every angle is carefully designed to encourage her horses to reach their full potential.

The Vicki Wilson equine breeding program produces elite competition horses from sires and dams with proven traits.

A much-awarded rider...

As a show jumping competitor, Vicki has few rivals in her home country of New Zealand. At 7 years of age, she won her first national title and ten more years of hard work paid off when she won the World Cup in 2014. Competing at the New Zealand Horse of the Year Show, Vicki has won the Lowry Medallion five times and the Nationwide Cup nine times – more than any other rider in history. Vicki is a versatile rider, competing across the show jumping, show hunter and showing disciplines. She has represented New Zealand in the winning Trans-Tasman Young Rider team three times and in Europe jumped to 1.40m under the New Zealand flag.

The world’s best start for young horses...

Outside the show jumping arena, Vicki was named the 2017 and 2018 World Champion Colt Starter at the Road to the Horse event in Kentucky, USA, and was invited back to Road to the Horse 2019. She has started hundreds of other young colts and fillies in her time, including wild Kaimanawa horses in New Zealand, Brumbies in Australia and Mustangs in the United States.

And a crowd-pleasing entertainer

Vicki has for a number of years impressed crowds in the Southern Hemisphere through bareback and bridle-free demonstrations and jumping displays. In 2011 Vicki jumped a 1.82m wall bareback. In 2012 she jumped a car, and in 2013 another horse.

The vicki Wilson Team

Olivia Murphy

Olivia Murphy is an 19-year-old from Fiordland, in New Zealand’s deep south with a passion for horses and a dream of competing on the national and international stage in show jumping and eventing. Olivia’s long-term goal is to run her own successful equestrian business, breeding top-level horses with bloodlines from across the world. With Vicki’s help, Olivia is learning and developing techniques to improve a horse’s well-being. The aim is for competitive riding to become a partnership, where both rider and horse really enjoy what they are doing.  As well as riding full-time for Vicki, Olivia currently has a small team of young showjumping horses, and is slowly moving them up the competition ladder, improving both her own and their skills along the way.

Super horses

LC Showtym Cassini

Born 2011, 16.2hh, Grey Mare
Sire: Cassini II
Dam: LC Sissi Imperatrice
This gorgeous mare has competed in the 5, 6 and 7yr old series classes with wins and placings making heads turn whenever she enters the ring. Cassie is scopey and careful with a huge heart. Due to a post surgery injury, her competition career has been cut short far to early on, which has left her in the broodmare paddock to produce quality foals for us.

Caretino Jewel

Born 2008, 16.2hh, Bay Gelding
Sire: Caretino Glory
Dam: Sabine (Darco)
Scotty competed to 1.50m in Premier Grand Prix's last season with wins and placings. He is very competitive in jump off's, while being scopey and smart. He is currently jumping with 13yo Olivia Newsom in junior riders and to 1.30m with ribbons at each show to date. Scotty is a competitive, fun horse that enjoys his job.

Daminos TWS

Born 2012, Grey Holstein Stallion
Sire: Diarado
Dam: Blanca Nieve
This exciting Holstein stallion has set NZ on fire in his first season. With wins in the 5yr classes, runner up North Island 5yr Champion and his first few demos under his belt we are excited for the upcoming seasons and beyond. Daminos is a delight to handle, ride and work with. He has light, powerful movement, amazing rideabilty and a scopey and correct jump that will keep going. His foals so far are exceptional and we are sure he is going to do big things.

Showtym Cadet MVNZ

Born 2005, 16.2hh, Chestnut Holstein Gelding
Sire: Orame VDL
Dam: Charming Princess
This stunning gentleman is a delight in every way. Ollie has had multiple wins and placings in GP, speed and national classes, including a 2014 World Cup win. He is a superb schoolmaster and was taking 13yo Olivia Newsom around junior riders with wins and placings. Not only does he jump, but he loves to demo and show off his spectacular rear and liberty work. Sadly Ollie recently passed away, far before his time.
