What is NITE?
NITE (North Islands Team Event) is held annually to provide an opportunity for North Island Adult riding clubs to compete against each other.
NITE is organised through the New Zealand Riding Clubs and is open to Adult Riding Clubs that are affiliated with NZRC.
Clubs can submit as many teams as they wish. Teams consist of 4-6 riders who compete in the various phases over the two days. Each phase must be completed by 4 riders from each team.
Below are examples of phases that may occur;
- Team Turnout
- TNZRC Team Test
- Riding Club Mount (Obstacle Course)
- Quadrille (Themed Dressage)
- Working Hunter
- Show Jumping (Gambler Stakes)
For more information on NITE visit the New Zealand Riding Clubs website.
This was held at Manfield in Feilding – a wonderful venue! KRC entered a team of six, but as always, we had a couple of extra members come as support crew. The event this year was run by the Manawatu Sadde Up club who did a fantastic job of organising and running the event. We all had a great time and of course are very proud of our 4th overall placing! (Just in case you’re wondering, our theme for the quadrille was Queens of the Desert!!)
