HARNESS HORSE OF THE YEAR
New Zealand Harness Horse
of the Year competition was born in 1999, when
the Horse of the Year show moved to the Hawke's
Bay Showgrounds. At first this competition was
a small competition to show off horses driven
Over the last few years this competition
has increased to a two day competition for Pony,
Horse and Donkey competitors.
In 2004 the Harness Horse of the
Year went International, inviting a team of drivers
form Australia to compete in a competition specifically
designed for the Harness Horse of the Year event.
This competition was a great success
and all those who took part really enjoyed themselves.
This year we have decided to incorporate
showing classes for Hackney and Non Hackney Horses
So why not enter and experience
Harness Horse of the Year.
Please go to the schedule
