The Takapoto Experience

 Join us at the picturesque Takapoto Estate in Cambridge, New Zealand as we bring together courageous athletes from the equestrian community for two weeks of thrilling competition, local cuisine, award-winning wines and the finest kiwi hospitality.



Takapoto Estate Show Jumping is a two week event for all ages showcasing the best of New Zealand and Australia's riders at Mitch and Kate Plaw's spectacular 600 acre property on the shores of Lake Karapiro in the Waikato. The show is held annually in late Summer.
The event aims to bring a taste of elite European show jumping to New Zealand equestrian fans. As well as New Zealand riders, we also have competitors flying from as far as Australia, Canada, Japan, Germany, France, Mexico and Brazil.
Each week hosts a number of functions including the Mexican Night, Woodfire Pizza Night, Harney & Sons High Tea, Takapoto Estate Farm to Table Dinner, APL Cocktail Party and the VIP Grand Prix Lunch.
Food trucks will provide a wide array of food options and a public bar is also available during the day on-site.
