Thank you so much for your patience and enduring goodwill whilst we worked through all possible scenarios for Land Rover Horse of the Year 2021 during NZ’s ever-changing Covid19 situation.

We know there is huge support for us to go ahead however, there are many factors we have had to consider. These include financial implications for our show and its ongoing sustainability, the travel and time pressures for riders, the experience we can deliver for our riders and spectators, and most importantly of all, the health & wellbeing of everyone who attends the show.

With that in mind we have made the heart-breaking decision to cancel the 2021 show.

This is not a decision we have made lightly, particularly when the majority of our expense has already been incurred, however, we feel it is the right thing to do for our riders, stakeholders, exhibitors and spectators.

We are truly devastated and send all our best wishes to our Land Rover Horse of the Year family from all corners of New Zealand. Riders & Exhibitors will receive direct communications about next steps.

Rest assured we already have 2022 firmly in our sights and will come back bigger and better than ever.
