EQUITANA Melbourne 2018 - Education Program Application

The Education Program is an integral part of every EQUITANA and one of the main reasons visitors travel from all over the country, and from overseas, to attend the event. Demonstrations and classroom sessions are provided by some of the best equestrians, trainers, vets and equine experts in the world.

Each year there is innovative research done in every aspect of the equine industry from all over the world. EQUITANA is the only place that you can find a diverse range of presenters in so many categories including English and western sports, equine health & care, natural therapies and horsemanship.

EQUITANA Melbourne is pleased to offer you the opportunity to present your demonstrations on your own or with another presenter in the choice of a classroom facility, a rubber matted arena for static demonstrations or a sand arena for presentations that require horses to be ridden or driven!

If you would like to apply together with another presenter and on your own with different topic areas please submit two applications (one application with the two presenters and another application on your own).

Simply fill out and submit the form below in as much detail about you and your presentation and session requirements.

Please allow around 45minutes to compete and review the application form. Information from your application form will be included in our printed program and promotional material and it is important to promote your attendance in the best possible way.

It is best to save your answers in a Word document and copy and paste as you go to ensure you keep your own copy just in case anything goes awry! You can download a template of the questions in the form to assist you. Only forms submitted online will be accepted. Ensure you complete ALL fields in the application. If you feel some are not applicable to you, please put 'NA' in text fields or '0' in numerical fields.

If you require any assistance with completing the online form, please contact the Education Manager on education@equineproductions.com.au or +61 3 86982000.
