Kaimanawa Makeover Stallion Challenge - 2014/2015

Ben was invited to be one of the trainers in New Zealand’s first wild horse challenge. This ambitious event placed 21 wild and untouched stallions with the nation’s leading horse trainers. Kaimanawa Heritage Horses (KHH) created the challenge to highlight the talent and trainability of wild Kaimanawas through a national training initiative.
After being selected, trainers were randomly assigned an adult Kaimanawa stallion (over three-years-old), which had to be gelded to be eligible to compete. Trainers had 150 days to build trust and develop a relationship with their horses to ensure the best possible performance in the halter and/or ridden classes at Equidays. Trainers then went on to compete Horse of the Year Show 6 months later, where Ben was placed 2nd in his freestyle and 5th overall from the initial 21 horses.

Radio NZ Interview - 2011

"Ben Longwell is a living, breathing real life cowboy from Colorado. He wears leather chaps and Stetson hats and trains horses for a living. But instead of riding the range in America, Ben married a Kiwi girl and now makes his home on a lifestyle block at Warkworth, north of Auckland."
