David Hill typed up and sent us this article that appeared in Teletext. How cool would it be to be a Rider of Rohan? If only I lived in New Zealand (and knew how to ride a horse)!
Movies Calling Horses and Riders
Hundreds of horses and riders are being sought for Peter Jackson’s
forth coming cinema trilogy “Lord of the Rings”.
The $360 million project is to be shot in locations throughout
New Zealand for WingNut films.
The film company is looking for experienced riders with horses over 15
hands high to take part. Both horses and riders should be comfortable
in large, noisy crowds.
Auditions are to be held in Alexandra, Queenstown and Oamaru.
