Stabling conditions

Please read carefully
Firstly the Kelt Capital H.O.Y stabling administration greatly appreciated the amazing co-operation from the competitors in 2007, and we are looking forward to seeing you all again in 2008.

Due to the number of horses needing accommodation on the grounds it can be difficult to cater for everyone’s stabling. There are approximately 750 yards and boxes located on the show grounds. 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 putting down the Hastings racecourse stables as a second choice. These are very good facilities. There is truck parking and camping available. 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. It would be approximately a 10 min drive from the show grounds. There are both stables and yards available at these facilities, the stables a 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 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 15mins drive from the show grounds. There are 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. You can even camp here with your K9 and there is no charge for camping.

Local Accommodation: There are some local people who have offered accommodation for horses etc. For anyone who is interested in taking this offer up please indicate on the stabling form, under special requirements. If you require more information on any of the areas mentioned on the stabling form please Phone Ocean Hartrick on 027 4390 303 or the K.C.H.O.Y/Event pro office 06 8448714
