The North Island All Breed Inhand Horse Show was started in Rotorua in 1996. The original committee felt there was a need for a show catering for breeds that were not included in most shows.
Since then the show has grown and become very popular with competitors.
It has also been held at the Claudelands Show Ground.
Due to the growth of the show the Committee decided to move the show to The Fibre Fresh National Equestrian Centre in Taupo in 2014. This has provided lots of space and is a great environment for young horses and handlers starting out.
