Mark also represented New Zealand in pure show jumping at the Seoul and Barcelona Olympic Games. He completed Badminton on Bertie Blunt in 1995 with just one stirrup. In 1994 he won Badminton on Horton Point, a horse he had only sat on for a total of two hours prior to the start of the event.

Mark once drove five miles with the ramp fully down on his enormous lorry - with the horses on board! He once fell asleep before the start of Badminton cross country and nearly missed his time.

He still can't resist a disco!!
