More than $100,000 in overall prize money is on offer at the 2013 Canterbury A&P Show.
More than $100,000 in overall prize money is on offer at the 2013 Canterbury A&P Show.

Showing entries are now open for the 2013 Canterbury A&P Show, the country’s largest Agricultural and Pastoral Show.

A&P-ShowOrganisers are calling on equestrian enthusiasts from throughout New Zealand to compete at the show,  from Wednesday 13 to Friday 15 November at Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch.

WIN Free Entry Fees!
Be in the draw to win complimentary equestrian entry fees for this year’s 151st Canterbury A&P Show (excludes stable/pen fee, ground fee, catalogue).

And the winner is … Kelsea O’Connor

In addition to showing success, exhibitors will be competing for over $100,000 in overall prize money. Canterbury will also be continuing its exhibitor subsidies, offered to North Island and Southland exhibitors who have to travel great distances to attend the show in Christchurch.

Several top international and national judges have been confirmed for the show, including international equine consultant and educator Wayne G. Hipsley from Kentucky, USA.

Hipsley has judged at many A&P Shows in New Zealand and has conducted training programs, educational seminars and training clinics in various locations. In addition, he is an advisor to the University of Finlay Equine Advisory Board, one of the largest equine teaching programs in the USA.

A new addition to the equestrian section, one of the country’s largest equestrian programmes, is Stock & Station, which will be held on Friday, November 15 in the Isaac 2 Arena. Stock & Station was originally instigated at local A&P Shows to reflect the history of the large hill-country runs, with many stations and farms still relying on the horse as a work animal today. The classes are designed to demonstrate pace, agility and obedience and have great spectator appeal. Riders and their mounts are expected to turn out in tidy attire, appropriate to working on a station.

The Schedule of Classes for the 151st Canterbury A&P Show can be downloaded at www.theshow.co.nz, or contact the Show Secretary on 03 343 3033 or info@theshow.co.nz.

Horse & Pony entries close on Friday, September 20, 2013. Showjumping entries close on Wednesday, October 23, 2013.

    We would be thrilled to get entry fees back.3 horses over 3 days equals a lot of expense.

    With 4 horses competing over the 3 days my expenses are huge, but as it is my favourite show of the season I wouldn’t have it any other way! Winning back my entry fees would make my week so much better, more shopping money!!!!! 🙂

    My 8yo daughter will be showing her new pony this year. The pony is the first ‘show’ pony we have had, so with travel, entrys, stables etc it all adds up. So to have entrys refunded would be fantastic for small people like us 🙂

    My favourite time of the year, Christchurch Show! A true highlight, and this year I am having a crack at competing on all 3 days, rather than competing 1 and stewarding 2! Good luck everyone, and have fun!

    I have been coming to Canterbury A&P Show since I was a baby in the 1960’s with my parents being dairy farmers.
    It has always been the highlight of my year and I haven’t missed a show since I started competing my pony at 11 years old!
    I have entered 3 again this year.
