The New Zealand Pony Clubs have three National Competition Events: Dressage, Games and Horse Trials.  Equestrian NZ have held a Pony Club Area Teams Show Jumping competition at the Horse of the Year for the last four years.  Visit www.nzpca.org for more details.

Dressage: To alleviate the huge expense of crossing Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Island the National Dressage competition is held in both Islands, with the same tests being used and the same judges flown to both venues.

Games: Since the 50th jubilee year in 1996 the Areas have held the Prince Phillip Games competitions. Again, to alleviate huge traveling distances these are held in Zones, with each Area being able to send a maximum of five teams, either Club or Branch teams. 

Horse Trials: The longest running National event this began as a Club teams event in 1956 then became an Area event in 1960. From 1969 the format has been a team of three DC riders (16yrs and under) and three A1 riders (17 and under 21yrs).

Show Jumping Teams Event:  Newest event, being held at the Horse of the Year since 2008.  Two pony riders (16yrs and under) compete at 1.05m while two hack riders (under 21yrs) compete at 1.10m.  The second round of the competition is competed in the Main Oval, a huge thrill for our Pony Clubbers.
