Onwards and Upwards - owned by Cameron and Mary Crawford and Powell
Caroline Powell has twice been selected to represent New Zealand at the Olympic Games – in 2012 at London where they won team bronze, and 2008 in Beijing – both times with her legendary little grey Lenamore. The combination also wore the silver fern at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, and for the 2010 WEG she paired up with Mac MacDonald, where they won a team bronze. She was named in the 2014 WEG team but had to withdraw.
She began her equestrian career at Pony Club in Christchurch, working a paper round to pay for her pony’s shoes. She headed to the UK for a holiday but ended up riding point to point, and staying on to work as a groom for Ian Stark for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.
From there she got her own yard and things grew from there. Lenamore is her most famous horse – the plucky grey who won the Burghley Horse Trials in 2010, had his own fan base. He was retired from top competition in 2013.
Powell has 26 CCI4* completions to her credit, with 10 of those in the top nine of the fields.
