New for 2013, Ride The Rhythm promises to be a magical night of music and thrilling high-action equestrian entertainment. In a world first, enduring pop legends ‘The Hollies’ will share centrestage with world class equestrian in their only South Island show, playing under one roof in New Zealand’s newest, largest and most versatile indoor events arena, the Forsyth Barr Stadium.
Part of their 50th Anniversary tour, The Hollies are arguably one of the greatest bands of all time. Credited with shaping the world of pop music as we know it today, they had more hits than The Beatles and their mega hits like ‘The Air That I Breathe’ and ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ are amongst the world’s most-played songs of all time.
Doors open at 3:30pm with equestrian action kicking off the evening’s entertainment, thrilling the crowd from every angle. It will include everything from international show jumping and the high-paced action of mounted games, to the masterfully crafted grace, power and beauty of dressage to music. The stadium’s intimate feel will only add to the spectacle, bringing its own unique party atmosphere.
The highlight of the equestrian action will be the McMillian Equine Feeds Super Grand Prix, boasting a $50,000 prize, making it the second biggest Grand Prix in Australasia. Run over two rounds, the competition will feature some of Australasia’s leading jumping combinations.
As the equestrian entertainment draws to a close, The Hollies will take to the stage bringing down the curtain on Dunedin’s biggest night of the year, providing hours of entertainment.
Don’t miss being part of history... it will be huge!
