All competitors must purchase show entrance tickets in order to access the showgrounds. It is highly recommended that tickets be purchased via this link. Electronic/printed tickets will be scanned at the gate and an equestrian wristband will be issued, enabling in/out access for the duration of that day (or for the weekend if a weekend pass is purchased). There will be no ticket sales at the Equestrian Gate. If you have not pre-purchased your ticket, you will need to either purchase online immediately (this is the cheaper option) or purchase at the Main Gate.
The Equestrian Gate opens at 6 am (entry to the stable area is off the Central Corridor). All persons entering the Equestrian Gate will need to show a ticket/wristband (this includes car passengers).
An Equestrian Car Pass is required to be displayed on your dashboard for entry into the equestrian parking area. These passes will be emailed to the registrants by the NHPC Show Program Coordinator. Equestrian parking and drop off will be near the main stables inside the Equestrian Gate. Overflow equestrian parking is available on the Palmerston polocrosse field.
For equestrian competitors, camping is available at a nominal cost. Please contact the Show Office on 0488588202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Fireworks commence at 8 pm on Saturday night – all horses must be secured and supervised if still on the Reserve.
