Dressage

The dressage phase is a test of elegance in motion, challenging horse and rider to complete a series of choreographed movements with precision and flair.

Cross Country

The Cross Country is the most exhilarating discipline of the three day event. It requires determination, courage, and trust between horse and rider to successfully complete the seven kilometre course over imposing obstacles through Adelaide’s spectacular parklands.
