On Saturday, competitors create shoes specified by their Judge across three classes, Novice, Intermediate and Open.
Sunday will be an exciting day in the marquee, with a variety of horses having their feet shod across three classes.
The Kaimanawa Legacy Foundation is excited to announce the invitational Kaimanawa Legacy Freestyle, in which the nation’s top Kaimanawa horses will compete in a spirited freestyle routine.
The line-up will include some of the nation’s leading trainers, crowd favourites from the Stallion Challenges and wild card competitors, all with one goal in mind: to showcase the versatility and trainability of New Zealand’s wild horses.
Along with this competition, Kaimanawa Legacy Foundation will offer demonstrations and seminars to promote the 2024 Kaimanawa Horse Muster.
