The EQUITANA Australian Open CDI-W Dressage presented by Mulawa Performance Horses and Longvue Dressage program is a spectacle not to be missed. 15 of Australia's top horse and rider combinations will battle it out in the Grand Prix on Thursday morning to decide the starting order for the prestigious Freestyle, held on Friday evening.
To be eligible to compete the riders will need to score a minimum of 62% in the Grand Prix at two events in the 2018 competition calendar.
Competitors will compete for a total prize pool of almost $30,000.
The evening will be opened by our Inspiring Para Equestrian Dressage Athletes in Action! This Feature will include Paralympians and Up and Coming Riders working through the various FEI Para Grades in a Freestyle, demonstrating the required and optional movements for each. The audience will have the opportunity to learn about what the judges are looking for, how the riders gain difficulty marks, and the horses which are suited to the requirements of each grade. You will also enjoy the performance of the first ever Para Quadrille.
