He grew up in Northland where his father bred race horses, and nurtured a love of horses that would last a lifetime. He was a showjumper before he turned his hand to eventing, where he really excelled.
He has won or placed in many of the world’s top events. Tait retired after the Athens Olympics in 2004, but returned to the sport he loved in 2011 and has been working his way back up the ranks ever since.
