Auckland Manukau Dressage Group
AMDG was formed in 1977 and has been at home on Clevedon Showgrounds since the 1980s. Aiming to provide a quality competition and training venue for dressage in a supportive environment, they cater for riders at all levels of the sport – from the beginner dressage rider to Olympic representatives, from young riders to masters, both able bodied and para-equestrians.
Auckland Manukau Dressage Group enjoys the support received from Harrison Lane and the new club room facilities they designed and built for them.
“I wanted to write personally to say thank you for sponsoring the Amateur Champions at the Auckland Manukau Champs. I loved the idea of competing on a level playing field against my peers rather than facing the well practiced big names that often win. It was your sponsorship of the amateur Champions that was the key reason I decided to come up to Auckland from Feilding to compete in the show. While it was a big trip it was great to see another dressage group and how they put on a show. It seemd like your lovely building was functional and without a doubt the hub for the show. I have attached a picture with Vendange wearing his sash, thank you again for your generous sponsorship.”
“Thank you very much for your sponsorship of the Auckland Manukau Dressage Group Amateur series and classes. This category gives us riders who are new to the discipline an opportunity to be competitive in our level. We had a fantastic weekend for our second registered start. Many thanks again.”

Show Jumping Auckland Manukau
Organising show jumping events and training sessions throughout the Auckland Region, Show Jumping Auckland Manukau is proud to enjoy the support of Harrison Lane. You may see us at their annual two star show in November at the Franklin A&P show grounds, where we often sponsor a Ring for the duration of the show and have a trade stand there as well.
The Richfields International Horse Trial, incorporating the New Zealand National One Day Eventing Championships was held at Richfields Thoroughbred Stud, Taniwha Road, Waerenga, New Zealand 26-27 November 2011, and Harrison Lane was proud to be supporting this event.
Here is Laura’s report from the event…
“The Force 10 gale didn’t deter any competitors from the Show Jumping and Cross Country Phases of this event on the Saturday. Bill Borrie’s Farm at Te Kauwhata looked as magnificent as ever and the Cross Country track had some interesting challenges. When I walked the course The Annandale hanging log at fence 7 looked to be one of the biggest tests and throughout the day a number of horses did take aversion to jumping it, although most were successful at the second or third attempt.We had the ‘Harrison Lane Village’ on the cross country phase which was a combination of island jumps that were taken in different combinations depending on the class. Sadly Simon Gordon on Simply Mitch, who were overnight leaders in the 3*, had a closer inspection of the ground at the final element of the Harrison Lane Village. The 3* is run under FEI rules which doesn’t allow competitors to re-mount and continue on the course. I commentated on some of the cross country phase with Graham Smith who is a great tutor and mentor and I feel privileged to have been asked. We are delighted to have been part of the event and all the competitors, supporters and helpers made the day extremely enjoyable. We look forward to being part of it again next year.”
