Kelt Capital Horse of the Year - A celebration of all things equestrian - New Zealand


Please click here for Tentative Stabling.

Please read the following stabling conditions carefully before filling out your stabling form.

Firstly the Kelt Capital H.O.Y stabling administration greatly appreciated the amazing co-operation from the competitors in 2008, and we are looking forward to seeing you all again in 2009.

Due to the number of horses needing accommodation on the grounds it can be difficult to cater for everyone’s stabling. There are approximately 1200 yards located on the show grounds approximately 35% of these are covered. The KELT CAPITAL H.O.Y.S gets bigger every year and due to the limited number of covered yards and stables at the show grounds it is really helpful for us to know that you, have a second preference. If you do urgently require a stable please do consider listing the Hastings racecourse stables as a second choice. These facilities are very good. Truck parking and camping is available there. Please help us to ensure we can accommodate everyone’s requests by marking a first and second choice on the form.
The Hastings Racecourse Accommodation Stables: located at 699 Wall Rd (the Southland Road end) on the south side of Hastings. This would be approximately a 10 minute drive from the show grounds. There are both stables and yards available at these facilities. The stables are very large and are suitable to house stallions, very large hacks, as well as mares that need to be boxed with their foals. The yards are also large and are great for bigger horses. There is a truck and parking/ camping area, and there are toilet facilities. However, there is not enough room to school horses. There is no charge for camping at the racecourse. 
The Flaxmere Equestrian Park: Located south of Hastings at the end of Equestrian Lane in Bridge Pa, approximately 15 minutes drive from the show grounds. There is truck parking/ camping, tent camping, toilets and showers available in this area. There is also plenty of room to school horses. However, there are no stables in this area. The yards are medium sized and suitable for ponies and hacks. 
Local Accommodation: there are some local people who have offered accommodation for horses etc. Anyone who is interested in taking up this offer, please phone the office 06 844 8714 or Ocean Hartrick 027 439 0303.
