The Takapoto Experience

New Zealand's Premier Equestrian Facility has plenty to offer.

The annual Takapoto Classic is returning on the 21st - 27th February 2022

 Join us at the picturesque Takapoto Estate as we bring together courageous athletes from the equestrian community for competition at all levels throughout the year. We have an onsite cafe & bar open during all show weekends, proudly serving delicious local cuisine, award winning wine and gin. You will find a boutique trade village if you are up for a spot of shopping, otherwise you can simply sit back relax and take in the scenery. A great weekend activity for the entire family. 




What to expect

Takapoto Estate Showjumping is an ever growing equestrian facility showcasing the best of the nation’s riders right through to grassroots level. We hold shows throughout the year as part of our Winter Series and a more elite Summer event held in February, known as the Takapoto Classic. The Classic brings a taste of European show jumping to New Zealand.



The Winter Series is a more informal, laid back environment for spectators whereas The Classic in February hosts a number of not-to-be missed social events. Included in the 2022 February line-up is the Takapoto Estate Farm to Table Dinner, APL Cocktail Party and the VIP Grand Prix Final Lunch as well as live music and themed evenings at the Riders Bar



On-site food trucks and cafes provide a wide array of options and a public bar is also available. 


There is a gate charge during February's show however our Winter Series events are free entry. 


There is free car parking onsite and the property is approximately 25 minutes drive from Cambridge.
