Emily
I am a Stationbred (North Island) with a strong likelihood of Connemara in me. I have socialised widely through Pony Club and have competed in cross country and love to jump. I have dreams of being a movie star and have auditioned extensively, but so far my only break has been a bit part in a toothpaste commercial, so for now I’m keeping my day job. I am currently flatting with Verano and Annie but love to party hard at night and go on the pick-up.

Ruby
Though young, I’ve been trekking for some time in Cable Bay. My parents thought it would be good for me to get some mountain experience, so I’m visiting my Aunty Summer. I’ll miss the sea and hope my new colleagues will be friendly. Ruby is young and beautiful and has caused some jealousy issues with Emily, who thinks there should only be one sexy chick in a crowd. But Summer will be looking out for her. Summer thinks Emily should have some counseling to deal with her jealousy issues and develop some insight into her body image problem, (Emily secretly binge eats). Will Ruby be able to make friends with Emily?

Big Sue
Mama Sue or Big Sue as she is also known, is a natural leader and mother hen all rolled into one. When Ginger arrived she thought she was her long lost daughter and was instantly adopted. She knows, what’s what and keeps everyone together, if there was a crisis the herd would all look to her for guidance. So she is the health and safety advisor and chief medical officer. She is not averse to a stiff whiskey of an evening.

River
River was an only child and lived a very isolated life until she came to the Baton, she now loves being part of the family. One of the team notice she was reading 50 Shades of Grey and seems to be on Tinder a lot, so we are wondering what she is up to on her trips to town on her days off??

Suzie
Suzie may appear fine boned and delicate with that fine pretty head but she is no shrinking violet and on the inside is an iron woman waiting to jump out. She is currently training for the iron woman competition and has no time for politics, while every one else is upset by a scary pig in the bush she is the one who goes forth to investigate while the others hide behind her, which is pretty hard as she is the smallest in the group. Whilst not romantically involved she is not adverse to knocking back a few vodka breezes and beating the boys at pool.

Annie
I’ve competed extensively in dressage and show jumping and now like to go out and win ribbons at trail riding competitions. I love going out to karaoke bars and line dancing competitions but I’m always up and ready to roll in the morning. I love being part of the team – I do the job well and I like being in the front over any terrain. I especially like the swimming at the end of the day. 

Ginger
Ginger is young active and precocious, she loves to go off into the city and climb and jump off roofs mainly because it is a trendy thing to do and makes her look cool. She gets round town on a skateboard and we are sure she is the one behind a lot of graffiti on trains, but she’s not owning up yet. The team thinks she needs to grow up and get a life!

Sandy
Sandy achieved a scholarship to a good university because of her sporting prowess at Basketball, but when she arrived she got a bit lazy and partied too hard and dropped out. She then did a big OE and seemed to be drifting from bar to bar, her parents threatened to not help pay for her student loan so she returned to finish her studies. She has now settled down to work and enjoys Baton Margaritas in the evenings. She thinks she’s number two in the team, but if there was a crisis she wouldn’t have a clue what to do!

Tui
Tui is a quiet and shy personality and drawn to Native American spirituality, her goal would be to go and join a reservation in America. Whilst out on a ride she dreams of finding gold and Jasper in the river to make beautiful pendants to wear or give away. The team thinks she is a bit too alternative and hope she doesn’t foist tarot card readings upon them!
