The ultimate test of horse and rider. One event, held over three days with 3 disciplines; dressage, cross country & show jumping. Come see the best eventing horses in New Zealand competing for National Titles.

Dressage is held on Friday. Enjoy the grace, refined beauty and elegance of dressage as competitors "dance" their way through the first phase of competition. The dressage phase tests the gaits, suppleness and obedience of the horse through a series of prescribed movements.

Saturday is cross country day and is the highlight of eventing. It's certainly the most exciting day. You'll see horses and riders gallop over the challenging terrain, at great speeds, jumping all types of obstacles including the famous water jump.

The show jumping test, the final phase on Sunday, sees those still left in the competition tackling a show jumping course that requires energy and precision. The show jumping tests their conditioning and training after Saturday's gruelling efforts.

There will be lots of trade stands catering for all your equestrian needs as well as many stalls selling food and drinks.

Entry is free on Friday and Sunday, $5 per car on Saturday.
