Fourflax is delighted to sponsor talented, local sisters, Kimberley & Jaimee Bird. They are both Horse GP riders with huge potential!


Kimberley has been riding since an early age. She started out riding at pony club participating in a number of disciplines before deciding Show jumping was what she wanted to pursue. Kim was successful at Pony Grand Prix before moving onto hacks. She has represented New Zealand and spent 3 months in Holland in 2016, riding in a stable where she produced horses and competed. 

Kim has also been a member of the South Island Young rider team for the past 4 seasons. She captained the winning South Island young rider team in 2018, against Victoria. 

Kim has competed and had huge success up to Horse Grand Prix on her previous mare Ngahiwi Summer and she is aiming to step up her current mare Cera Cassina to Grand Prix this coming 2018/19 season. Cera Cassina is a 9-year-old, grey, warmblood mare, 16.3hh by Cassini 2 out of Caletta (Caletto I). Cera Cassina (aka Beezie) was imported for Australian Based Cera Sport Horse December 2015, after finishing her duties as a broodmare.

He has been carefully produced and finished off the season finishing 4th in the Takapoto Bronze Tour.
In addition to Beezie and Che, Kim will also have another 2 youngsters that will be making appearances throughout this coming season.
What Kimberley thinks of Fourflax:
"Our team has been partnered with Fourflax for several years now, we have had fantastic results from their products, but my favourites would have to be the flax seed oil- for conditioning and giving my horses amazing shinny coats is just a couple of the many reasons why I love this product. The Bone & Joint supplement powder- we have had amazing results on older horses and ponies. We use this throughout the season with all our competition horses to ensure they have the best protection against wear and tear. I also absolutely love the Nettex products, I find these high quality, long lasting and economical."
