Jock Paget was born in New Zealand but moved to Australia at five. He was a late starter in equestrian and it wasn’t until he was 18 that he took up rodeo riding.

In less than two years he went from never having jumped a fence to competing at three star eventing level (the second highest level).

He moved back to New Zealand in 2007 to become principal rider for Clifton Eventers and in the 2008-2009 season was the nation's leading event rider.

He left NZ in February 2010 and had a full time eventing career winning some of the biggest competitions on the eventing circuit.

The quietly-spoken former bricklayer came from nowhere, to finish seventh individual at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) in 2010, and went on to feature at many top events. He was just the second rider to win Badminton on début.

Jock return to New Zealand at the end of 2016 with his wife Tegan to pursue a coaching career while still keeping riding.  The couple have settled in Taupo in central North Island.
