Land Rover Horse of the Year

Hawke's Bay Show Grounds, Kenilworth Road, Hastings District, Hawkes Bay

New Zealand’s premier equestrian showpiece the Land Rover Horse of the Year Show is set to host its biggest line-up ever this March, of some of the hottest names in world eventing.

The ‘power couple’ of world eventing - current Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials winner Tim Price and his Badminton-winning wife Jonelle are returning home to spur on the crowds, and take on the most challenging cross country course in the event’s history.

Watch this space as the new-look Burghley Day is soon to name a host of other Kiwi Olympians set to compete.
