Horse of The Year

Kenilworth Rd, Hastings

The Annual Horse of The Year Show is New Zealand’s Premier Equestrian Competition, featuring a range of horse and rider combinations from multiple disciplines. With over 1800 riders and 2500 horses competing for lucrative titles and prize money the show is a feature on most equestrian calendars.

The 2018 event is already shaping up to be one of the strongest shows yet, with a number of elite riders indicating their presence at hoy. Olympian and previous event title winner Clarke Johnstone Is once again looking forward to the show and its atmosphere, which he felt helped enormously in his preparation for the 2016 Olympics At Rio.

Of course, the show is almost as famous for its shopping as its sport, with over 150 trade sites including an all new lifestyle area catering to the whole family. The sites span a wide range of equestrian, food, fashion, home and lifestyle and more. With such a diverse audience and engaged customers, many local companies choose the event to showcase their wares.
