Thrilling week­end for horse fans

Matamata Chronicle - - Rural Delivery - By ALI TOCKER

Horse lovers will be pleased to hear that tick­ets for the Waikato’s three-day horse show Equi­days, at Mys­tery Creek Events Cen­tre, are on sale now. The flag­ship three-day show is back in Novem­ber for its sec­ond year in a row.

The show is an al­len­com­pass­ing equine event fo­cus­ing on all as­pects of the horse world. Fea­tures will in­clude demon­stra­tions from all the equine dis­ci­plines, exhibitions, com­pe­ti­tions, clin­ics, train­ing with ex­perts and night shows.

Mys­tery Creek Events Cen­tre said any sur­pluses from Equi­days will be rein­vested back into the growth of the event or into de­vel­op­ment of the events cen­tre.

Young horse riders from the Waikato and around the coun­try are be­ing of­fered the chance of a life­time to be closely in­volved with the event. The events cen­tre is of­fer­ing young horse en­thu­si­asts the op­por­tu­nity to ap­ply to take part in an on­site camp that will be held throughout Equi­days.

The camp is for peo­ple aged 21 and un­der, and 30 places are avail­able.

Suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants will stay in the camp for the whole event, from Novem­ber 2 to 4. They will ride twice a day with Equi­days clin­i­cians, and see all clin­ics and demon­stra­tions and two night shows free.

To take part, riders must be mem­bers of a New Zealand Pony Club and have a C+ or above horse rid­ing cer­tifi­cate.

The events cen­tre said Equi­days will largely sub­sidise the camp, with each par­tic­i­pant pay­ing only a small de­posit.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms for the camp and Equi­days tick­ets are avail­able at equi­days.co.nz.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close to­mor­row.
