NZ Horse & Pony - - Insider's Guide -

The South Coast Cav­al­cade is one of the old­est cav­al­cades in South­land. Orig­i­nally started by some of the el­ders of the River­ton eques­trian com­mu­nity as a fundrais­ing event for the South­land Fes­ti­val of the Horse show in 1996, the cav­al­cade takes place an­nu­ally in late Oc­to­ber, trekking over some spec­tac­u­lar coun­try. While the show only lasted for two years, the cav­al­cade has con­tin­ued. Open to rid­ers 16 years and over, it’s run over two days with one night spent camp­ing. Meals are pro­vided, usu­ally with lo­cal groups called in to do the cater­ing, and ev­ery year it’s over new ter­rain. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact pres­i­dent Ker­rin Price on 027 3044592.
