Five Westport racehorses being transported in their loose boxes to a race meeting on the Coast circuit many years ago, the truck was one of Gibbs Motors internationals.  Note all the horses heads were facing the Buller River for the trip up the Buller Gorge, this was a precaution taken to ensure that they could not be injured by the rock faces in the gorge.
