Horse of the North

The newest equestrian event in the Northland calendar- 2nd May 2020!

Whangarei A&P Society are proud to add a brand-new jumping event to our equestrian calendar. After an Open Day earlier this year, Horse of the North will be back on 2nd May 2020. The event is aimed at our local equestrian groups, trades people and the general public.  Competitors are judged on English Working Hunter style jumps, with changes of rein. After jumping, competitors are also judged on conformation, style and manners.

This year Horse of the North acts as the Championship Title Class for ALL Northern Districts A&P Shows. This means that Champion or Reserve winners in Working Hunter or Hunter classes at ANY Northern Districts A&P Shows in 2019/20 season will qualify for Horse of the North 2020.

If you are a winner or for more information contact Whangarei A&P Society on 09) 438 3109 or
