Equestrian Sports NZ, like the rest of the equestrian community is disappointed that the Land Rover Horse of the Year Show 2021 has been cancelled.

We know this was not an easy decision for the Horse of the Year Show Board to make.  We congratulate and applaud them on their decision-making process and for keeping the health and well-being of everyone in mind.

ESNZ would also like to acknowledge the support that is being shown from the equestrian community to the Land Rover Horse of the Year Show organising committee, we know they appreciate your support and will appreciate your continued support in years to come.

We are aware that a lot of trade stands had ordered extra stock ahead of the show and it is great to see support for these vendors by way of social media sales and events.

At ESNZ, we will be turning the office into our marquee and still going ahead with all the exciting things we had planned for the show.  Keep an eye on our social media pages to get involved and a chance to win some great prizes.

Unfortunately, this also means that the ESNZ Hall of Fame Awards which were to be held at the show have been postponed until further notice.  ESNZ staff are working on a plan B to be held later in the year. 

We look forward to seeing everyone in 2022 for an even bigger and better Land Rover Horse of the Year Show.

The date for next year’s Land Rover Horse of the Year Show is 8th – 13th March 2022.
