A Living Legend
The never before told story of a true New Zealand icon and the family behind it. The DB Clydesdales forged their fame as ambassadors for one of New Zealand's largest breweries but their popularity and appeal ultimately spread far beyond beer marketing and into the hearts of every New Zealander.
“Inspiring and honest."
“Behind the Reins is an incredible collection of amazing adventures, stunning scenery and beautiful horses. A truly beautiful book, inspiring, and honest… Nick's stories are full of compassion and genuine love and pride for his horses, family and team.”
I'm proud to bring you this book and share my experiences of a lifetime working with these majestic creatures and one of this country's leading breweries. I hope you enjoy the read as much as I have enjoyed writing it.
