Horse Competition

Competition Overview 

The Horse Competition will once again see some of the best-groomed animals at Ekka take over the Main Arena. Horses have been competing at the Ekka since the very first show in 1876 when silver cups were awarded to the best stallion and best heavy draught stallion.

More than 15 breeds of horses will be on display across the eight days of judging. Don't miss the junior riders on the last weekend of show, with kids as young as three taking part.
