2024 SCHEDULES

There’s so much depth to the Horse of the Year Show. Our event attracts more than 1500 riders aboard 1900 horses who compete across so many disciplines, all vying for top titles and bragging rights at New Zealand’s pinnacle show. Spectators get to soak in an atmosphere like no other where they can be entranced by the beauty of dressage, feel the thrill of cross country, enjoy the excitement of showjumping and the speed of mounted games and more. The jewel in the crown is the Olympic Cup where our nation’s best will compete to win the New Zealand Showjumper of the Year crown. But each discipline has its top titles on the line, so take time to wander around the Tōmoana Showgrounds and be part of an historic show.
