Major New Horse Event Set Down for Hamilton

Major New Horse Event Set Down for Hamilton

New Zealand and Australian based companies have been quick to sign on for trade space at the upcoming event, Horse New Zealand, to be held at the Waikato Events Centre in Hamilton on November 26 and 27, 2004.

Horse New Zealand director Jacquie Webby, who has worked on the idea for almost two years, is delighted with the response from those involved in the horse industry and says that for an inaugural event, the response has been terrific..

Horse Zealand 2004 is designed to showcase the New Zealand Horse and the Horse Industry,” she said. “This means not only horse breeds, but everything to do with the horse. When you consider that New Zealand prides itself on being the Kentucky of the Southern Hemisphere as far as our horse industry is concerned, this event is designed to display the very best the country has to offer.”

Exhibiting alongside studs, horsefloat manufacturers, rug and saddlery designers and suppliers, horse food and health products, are a whole range of associated products such as clothing for the showring and leisure riding, farrier displays, booksellers, horse transport operators and at least five offshore companies who are coming in from Australia for the event.

“In addition to the trade stands, there will be a number of other special attractions,” said Jacquie. “The Hall of Specialists will feature leading local and international equine vets and one of Australia’s finest horse herbalists. The lectures will be held over both days upstairs at the venue. Outside in special demonstration areas and in the main oval, visitors to the venue will see exciting events such as the mounted games group who have just returned from the international championships in France, live horsemanship and farrier demonstrations and a number of other special attractions. . The programme should appeal to everyone who visits the venue over the two day event which is scheduled for November 26/27 2004 at the Waikato Events Centre, Claudelands”
