Herberton Horse Sports


Young and old have been attending horse sports at Tepon for many years now.


Horse sports is a casual, fun and challenging equine activity – no need for jodhpurs or ties, just throw on your jeans and boots and away you go. Horse sports consist of fun timed events – barrel racing, flag race, bending, novelty events for all ages 1 year to 100 years! From absolute beginner to experienced horseman. Ribbons and prize money are awarded for placing in these events, with minimal nomination fees. Just by competing you are a winner!


The atmosphere is relaxed, supportive and encouraging. A great place to meet new friends and families, all there for the same reason – to have fun on horseback. Stay the weekend in great camping grounds with your best mates – equine and human!


“We visited Tepon one weekend to take a look and see what the heck “horse sports” was all about. We were blown away by the amazing and fun events that everyone was riding in. We were instantly welcomed, encouraged and invited to be part of this great atmosphere. We joined straight away and started off in a rocky fashion (horses that wouldn’t load, kids having mishaps etc) and received so much support, encouragement & helpful advice from others attending and have made some awesome friend along the way. We have now been attending Herberton Horse Sports for a couple of years and wouldn’t miss one single event on the calendar!” Hudson Family
