People from around the globe are tuning in to watch the live streaming of the NRM Horse of the Year Show.
More than 1500 people have registered on to follow the show. Most are from around New Zealand, but Australia is not far behind, followed by Great Britain and others.

Event Freak owner Nik Eliadis is rapt with the uptake.

“It has been fantastic,” says the Taupo based businessman.

The system has been running very smoothly and now includes the main dressage classes.

Coverage in the Land Rover Premier Dressage Arena starts at 11.20am today with the Dunstan Horse Feeds CDI FEI Grand Prix Special, right through to 5.45pm with the Hansen Products CDIY FEI Young Rider of the Year individual test.

In the Land Rover Premier Arena (showjumping) this morning, the Nelson Family 1.35m Horse Championship gets underway at 10.15am, followed by the Farmlands Pony of the Year at 12.10pm.

There are five screens set around the grounds for the very exciting John Nicholson designed cross county this afternoon. The first rider gets underway at 2.30pm with the two star.

There's more dressage tomorrow from 9am including the big one at 12.20pm, the GJ Gardner Homes CDI3* FEI Grand Prix Freestyle.
