Where to Stay



Land Rover Horse of the Year has onsite camping available for competitors and visitors. You can purchase a powered or a non-powered site at the show.  There are limited powered sites and so expressions of interest and application forms are needed asap. Spectator camping passes are available on I-ticket in the lead up to the show.


If you are only coming to the show for a couple of days or do not wish to camp onsite there are countless places to stay in the surrounding area. Hawkes Bay has countless types of accommodation to suit everyone’s needs. Please note, that some accommodation is already filling up and so accommodation arrangements should be made as soon as possible.

If you need any help with accomodation, check out the Hastings I-Site for more information
