Welcome to Equine FX!


This site is all about equine effects including

horse trick & stunt riding in New Zealand.

Trick riding is another equestrian sport that people from the United States of America, Australia, England, Germany, France and many more countries, perform.

It is like gymnastics  on the back of a fast running horse that takes hours, days and years to perfect.

The horses need to be broad minded and willing to run. They should be around 15 hands high, nimble and surefooted.

Have a look at the pictures and see what you think.

Many of these tricks are done in the movies like Hidalgo and The Mask of Zorro.


Trick riding  is a lot of fun and very entertaining.



Here is a  quarterhorse/standardbred named Ace of Spades. He is carrying his rider Cossack Drag style.




“We were at the Mayfield Show this year…..”

“We watched your riding which we enjoyed

very much…..” Jim Pickles

“This is Bronwyn here, just wanted to thank you very much for yesterday, you were sensational and very good with the children.”  Bronwyn Meads Bulls and District Coordinator

Shame you are on the other side of the world could do with another good female trickrider.   Julia ( Francesca) West.

a fantastic job on NYD (New Years Day) – really appreciate you wowing the crowd like you did – awesome!! Julie Neilson NPOB Surfclub

Not only was your performance a crowd pleaser, but from an event manager position you were a dream to work with. I would recommend you to anyone

Best wishes   Matt Cowley
