Team LA

Little Avondale and its horses are only as good as their team. It's their daily attention to detail which ensures the safety and health of every horse

Sam Williams

Little Avondale's proprietor Sam Williams. He has come a long way since he helped out at the Te Parae stables for just $5 a day pocket money!


Catriona Williams

Catriona Williams began riding as a four year old, in front of the saddle of her mother Maureen as they shifted sheep and cattle on the McLeod family's Wairarapa farm.
