The former world No.1 and six-time Olympian will take part in the first ever Equitana event, travelling from his base in England.

It is a sister event to those held in Melbourne and Essen, Germany.

The Waikato-born Nicholson recently staged a mighty comeback to win a maiden Badminton Horse Trials crown, in what was his 37th attempt.

"I'm really looking forward to coming back to New Zealand and being part of the action at Equitana," Nicholson said.

"It promises to be a unique and exciting event, and a great opportunity for me to thank equestrian fans for their messages and support."
