Things are jumping over in Hawkes Bay next week

06 Mar 2019

The Land Rover Horse of the Year is the show to find all things equestrian – and it’s heading to Hawkes Bay from the 12th-17th of March. From thrilling competitions to delicious hospitality options, over 200 participating retail stores and a full week of entertainment, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Fourteen different riding events will be showcased, including show jumping, dressage, side saddle, mounted games and miniatures, to name a few. This year, you’ll also have the chance to catch some of the world's best eventing riders up close and in action competing for the first time in New Zealand in over 10 years. Blyth Tait will be joining power couple Tim and Jonelle Price in the Land Rover 4* Eventing Competition, taking place in the Premier Jumping Arena in Hastings.

Be sure to showcase your art skills at the Resene Paint by Numbers Mural and check out the Resene Schools’ Competition Banners painted by local school children too.
