20 Years of EQUITANA Australia

It’s EQUITANA’s 20th year in Australia and to celebrate we’re making the 2018 event one that will completely blow you away. From competition, education, exhibition and entertainment, all aspects of EQUITANA will be reaching new heights at the Melbourne Showgrounds 15-18 November 2018...


The biggest Equine show in the Southern Hemisphere is back and will all be drawing on crowd favourites from past EQUITANA’s to celebrate this milestone for the event. Looking back over all the EQUITANA’s that have been held in Australia, there is a plethora of talent to get involved with, so everyone can wish EQUITANA a happy 20th birthday.

Familiar faces will battle it out on EQUITANA’s 3 competition arenas across the four days of EQUITANA. The famous competition program will return and will bring the top riders from across Australia and across all disciplines back to Melbourne to battle it out in front of the packed to capacity crowds.

The famous exhibition halls will be transformed to make room for even more traders who want to be part of Australia’s hallmark equestrian event. More traders means more bargains for shoppers so make sure you are ready to snatch up a bargain.

An EQUITANA Anniversary show to end all shows will help celebrate our milestone. Under lights and on the main arena, this birthday showcase will set the standard of equine shows in the future and will leave the audience spellbound and on the edge of their seats. Make sure you don’t miss your seat for EQUITANA’s Evening Entertainment.

So come and celebrate 20 years of EQUITANA in Australia at the Melbourne Showgrounds, November 15th to 18th in 2018.
