To attend Takapoto Estate Show Jumping is to be inspired, entranced and entertained on a level rarely seen in New Zealand equestrian competition.

The two-week event nestled in a stunning private property on the shores of Lake Karapiro showcases the very best of New Zealand’s riders competing for top prize money. It brings a taste of European showjumping to New Zealand shores and includes top competitors from both sides of the Tasman as well as Europe.

Entry during the week is free and no tickets are required. General admission passes are available for the general public on Saturday and Sunday each weekend. Children under 10 are free every day except for the VIP lunch. A café and a public bar are available onsite during the day.
