Kiwi equestrian power couple Tim and Jonelle Price eye global dominance

Kiwi equestrian stars Jonelle and Tim Price are aiming to conquer the world's best in 2019.

After securing victories at the most prestigious events on the calendar  the Tokyo Olympics are firmly in the star couple's sights.

They've also got their hands full with an energetic son.

"He certainly enhances our lives on a daily basis and keeps us grounded," said Jonelle.

"He's pretty well travelled and it's certainly fun having him on the road with us."

It's a road that's led them to wins at the biggest events in the world... with Tim victorious at the Burghley Horse Trials, and Jonelle triumphing at Badminton.

"While it is an individual sport it's very much a team operation as well and we sort of enjoy each other's wins as much as we enjoy our own," said Jonelle.

Her win at Badminton was the first by a female since 2007 and the breakthrough moment of her career.  

"It's been a long time coming but it's nice to finally get there."

This year is an important one for securing an Olympic berth.

"We've got some good horses between us at the moment so provided they're doing what they should be, the qualification part should come easy."

"We want to make an assault on the Olympics and to do that, qualification should be just a thing that comes along the way," Tim adds.

They also want to climb up the rankings. The pair sitting third and seventh in the world rankings.

"It'd be nice to have both of us up there vying for the world number one spot which demonstrates that consistency."
