Welcome the largest equestrian event in the southern hemisphere!

Compare the excitement of the showjumping and eventing competitions with the beauty of the show horse and dressage classes, the delicacy of the miniatures with the might of the gentle giants, the Clydesdales.

172 trade sites will line the arenas for all your shopping needs. Cafe and Bars allow you to soak up the equestrian entertainment under the Hawke's Bay Sun. This year will also feature the World Mounted Games championship with teams from all over the world converging on the Horse of the Year Show

Welcome to the Horse of the Year Show for 2013. Our mission statement reads “to provide one huge event in which competitors, young and old, experienced and inexperienced, and from all equestrian discipline, can compete.”

The Horse of the Year Show continues to grow in prestige and stature not only within New Zealand, where it is now recognised as one of the main annual sporting events, but also on the World Equestrian Stage where it has now become one of the premier events. Although dominated by showjumping and dressage, the show is now home to 17 different equestrian disciplines all competing on the beautiful 100 acres of the Hawke’s Bay Showgrounds. The Showgrounds are on the outskirts of Hastings City, situated on the Eastern Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.

Holding this prestigious event brings to our region over $27 million in revenue. In addition, free to air television, helps to make this show more attractive to the competitor, sponsor and spectator, as well as the viewing public.

Features of the 2013 event:
2,500 combinations of horse and rider;
Course designed by Leopoldo Palacios, course designer for the 2008 Olympic Games;
The Dressage Kur, the Premier Dressage Class;
Friday night equestrian extravaganza;
