im a fl resident coming to Auckland to visit my family .ive ran barrels and competed in rodeos and NBHA shows and owned horses since 1992. My family has never seen me run barrels because ive always been in the US . Do you think there is anyone able to lease me a horse to run in some of the rodeos while im visit for 2 months .

I'm not sure. Best would be to contact people from Wanaka Rodeo Club. I had a look and there is a contact number, which you can call on their home page.
