For the third year, World Cup Show Jumping will be on the calendar of the Australian Three Day Event.
Attracting some of Australia’s best showjumpers from across the country and New Zealand, World Cup Show Jumping takes pure jumping to the highest level. This year, the event also offers combinations the opportunity to earn their Certificate of Capability for the 2018 World Equestrian Games.
Proudly sponsored by iconic South Australian Company, Thomas Foods International, Sunday lunchtime will host the World Cup qualifying in the spectacular setting of the Adelaide Main Arena. This exciting class will test horse and riders, with some jumps reaching the maximum height 1.60m. The course will not only feature some huge jumps, but also test the skill and scope of horses with some technical lines to made sure that the best horse and rider is the winner.
Spectators will have a number of opportunities to see the horses jump on the Adelaide Main Arena prior to the Thomas Foods International World Cup Show Jump class on Sunday, with a warm-up class to be held on Friday Twilight following the completion of the Pryde’s EasiFeed Dressage Day.
For horses that are showing potential to jump at the highest level and to be stars of the future, Friday and Saturday evening’s program will feature a ‘futurity’ class, where horses will be challenged by a course of show jumps of around 1.30m.
Make sure you get the best seats in the house so you don’t miss a jump!
