Join the Friends of Bess to remember New Zealand horses who served in the First World War.
Of the 3817 New Zealand horses that served during the war, only four returned home - including Bess. They and the thousands that never returned will be remembered at the Bess Memorial near Bulls on Anzac Day at 9 a.m.

Bess, or Zelma, was one of only four New Zealand horses that eventually returned from the First World War.
The Friends of Bess are hoping to publish an information book on Bess for WW100, and to improve the Memorial to Bess site for better public access and protection from the elements if funding can be obtained.
