The Otago Showjumping group is managed by a small number of showjumping enthusiasts who are dedicated to making the group a success.
Otago Showjumping holds their shows at the Mosgiel A&P Showgrounds, just south of Dunedin. This is a top class facility, used by a range of equestrian groups.
The main goal is to provide high quality training and competition days. These days cater for beginner riders through to Grand Prix. We have a number of top riders representing Otago, both nationally and internationally.

Taranaki Equestrian Jumping is an “Area Group” affiliated to Equestrian Sport New Zealand Jumping (ESNZ Jumping). There are twenty “Area Groups” throughout New Zealand who are all charged with delivering the sport of equestrian jumping (previously referred to as ‘Showjumping’) to the equestrian community.
Our mission is to advance Jumping and Showhunter by providing a welcoming club environment, training opportunities, modern jumping equipment and running local and national shows. We also endeavour to encourage and promote the advancement of volunteers, officials and course designers.
Taranaki Equestrian Jumping also contribute to the governance of the sport through actively promoting our officials to the Board and Sub Committees of ESNZ Jumping, and through remits presented at the annual conference. We actively promote ESNZ Jumping initiatives and endeavour to reflect their strategic plan through our club initiatives.
Taranaki Equestrian Jumping have a brilliant history of success. We have been operating since 1985 And since that time have seen three Olympians emerge including Harvey Wilson (1988 Seoul Olympics), and Heelan Tompkins and Matthew Grayling have both been Eventing Olympians.
We welcome all new members and will do our very best to assist and encourage your jumping endeavours, assist with training and keep all members well informed of our club activities.
Starting in 1997, our local showjumping group ran a 2 day showjumping show that was held at Cambridg…e Thoroughbred Lodge, Cambridge New Zealand: 3 rings and 200 competitors….it was a concept that worked!
However with quickly escalating competitor numbers, the Committee decided to move onto a venue better suited to the objectives of the group and our horse show so we shifted to the Waipa Equestrian Park in Kihikihi.
From 2008, we expanded into 4 rings over our 3 day show. And from that time, now host a 3* World Cup Round (one of 6 only in all of NZ). Our diverse show program successfully caters to over 500 competitors of all levels; and we entertain up to 3000 spectators. In a time of great national recession, 2009 was our largest show ever and we were awarded the national distinction from Equestrian Sport New Zealand as having been voted the BEST NZ AREA SHOW OF THE YEAR –and– BEST ORGANIZED & STAGED SHOW IN NZ. These titles were voted on by our peers, the riders, the supporters, and other areas’ showjumping committees. So in essence, we even had our “competitors” voting for our particular show. A true honour, and one we are exremely proud of.
In 2013, we again moved our show with the view of creating better facilities for the horses and riders. Our move was to the well known Mystery Creek Events Centre. It is more central, close to the airport and boasts a international standard indoor arena, a new outdoor surface, an outdoor grass surface and the training/practice arena. The yarding and parking are closer to the competition arenas and the facilities for the riders are some of the nicest that you can find at an event.
We have always been fortunate in receiving a high level of support from both our local community, Waipa Council, and the equestrian industry of large. Without their generosity and continued support, we would not be able to run the show to the high standard of expectation.
Our sponsors are well looked after with a VIP marquee, lunch and drinks and the chance to meet the world cup riders and watch the action. We are fortunate to have been able to secure several large sponsors who are dedicated to assisting us with promoting a professional event.
Our show is supported by many trade stands and food outlets and we are entertained during the day and late into the evenings with music and dancing.
