Southland Show Jumping Group

Southland Showjumping Group

The Southland Show Jumping Group promotes the sport of show jumping in Southland. We hold three main shows a year - the Labour Weekend show in October, Christmas Festival in December and Southland Championships in February. These events are an integral part of the South Island show jumping calendar and attract riders from Canterbury south.

Our shows are held at the picturesque Gore A and P showgrounds. This has a main grass arena, with a sand base, as well as an all-weather arena. Both can comfortably accommodate two jumping rings. There is stabling and yards for those staying on the grounds.
