New Zealand has headed off nine other nations to take the Mounted Games World Team Championship at the Horse of the Year Show in Hastings.

The team led from the start and were convincing winners of the final before another packed grandstand.

It is the second time New Zealand has won the title - the last was in Australia in 2008 on borrowed ponies.

Defending champs France had to settle for fifth.
