Waitome Woolshed, Hawkes Bay, NZ
Deep in New Zealand’s beautiful Central Hawkes Bay countryside, a woolshed, complete with the lovely lanolin smell of shorn sheep was the venue. And we were in for an amazing treat, as Tracey Elliot-Reep spoke of her adventures on horseback throughout the world.
The audience were totally engaged as Tracey spoke, sharing a multitude of detail, speaking clearly and with great volume and pace. Every word could be clearly heard as she threw her voice to those in the back row. The joy, gentle humour and absolute excitement she communicated as she regaled us with one scenario after another, taking us through Ireland, New Zealand, USA, Europe and Israel; had her audience hanging on to her every word.
Tracey is a wonderful speaker, and totally able to maintain audience interest throughout, holding us all in the palm of her hand, as she shared her love of, and expertise with horses, and delighted us with her Christian faith, which she wove into the whole of the fabric of her talk. Tracey’s deep faith, and her love of people and animals is delightful, making that afternoon incredibly memorable for me.
Coming away with four of Tracey’s books, it is pure joy to dip into them, simply to enjoy Tracey’s stunning photography, but equally enjoyable are the entertaining, and intelligently styled stories that are recounted within their pages.
Tracey is a wonderfully talented speaker, photographer and writer, and I thoroughly recommend both her and her work.

Inspirational, creative, funny, challenging, encouraging
“God’s anointing was on you. All the glory went to our precious Savior as you exalted him. Your faithfulness and obedience shone through. God’s love, protection, faithfulness, courage was evident as you put Him first and trusted in His word.
Inspirational, creative, funny, challenging, encouraging. Your uniqueness shone through. Your passion for God and you trust and love for Him and His word shone through and spoke to many hearts young and mature.
Thank you for spurring us on to trust and stand on His word. He is faithful. He is truth. The joy of the Lord is your strength. Shalom Suzy Neil. Auckland, NZ
