In a world where there are few truly inspiring heroes – this story will fill in the gaps. I originally heard about this from my grandfather, whose father was a medic with the Australian Light Horsemen, World War 1… And that lead me on a quest to learn more about the story. Yes, my journey has taken me far and wide (across the the North Island) – from the Waiouru War Musuem, to books about the training of the war horses… And the story is truly astonishing. In a war where the New Zealand and Australian battalions where thought little of, this gang of light horsemen changed history. Charging for 3 miles over open desert, the Turks thinking us too stupid to do such a thing, the Kiwis and Aussies stormed the enemy camps, paving the way to victory for the British soldiers. New Zealand is such a young country, and has few great stories to tell on an international scale – but this is one of them. Maybe the best of them… Read it and learn some history as to what it was that made this the best country in the world to live in! Read about the brave men, and brave horses, who changed the course of history. Read it, and be proud to be a kiwi!
