Lloyds Bank in the UK has chosen to showcase New Zealand's natural beauty in its latest TV advertising campaign.

The ad, released this week, shows a herd of horses galloping along Tomahawk Beach, in Dunedin, and locals getting up early and heading to the beach with torches at sunrise to watch the horses.

People and horses gather at the beach in the early hours, just as the sun is rising on another "dunner stunner".

The ad was filmed in February and aired for the first time in the UK this week.
