Hi guys, my name is Callum Buczak and I’m excited to announce I’ll be your Eventing Insider for this years Australian International Three Day Event! I’m a full time Eventing rider based in Pakenham Upper, Victoria and will be competing in the CIC3* class on one of my horses, Matavia Cheval (Bentley).
I still remember how incredible it was to experience my first Adelaide Three Day Event when I was just eleven or twelve and it is so rewarding to now be able to compete there for my third straight year. It truly is such a unique event, not only being the highest level in the Southern Hemisphere, but also the only event where you can say you’ve galloped through the main streets of a capital city.
I’ve had Bentley since he was an unbroken two year old, which means we know each other like the back of our hand (or hoof?). This means over the years I’ve started to work out what does and doesn’t work when preparing for a huge event like the Aus Three Day. As Eventing Insider I look forward to sharing with you the in’s and out’s of our preparation over the coming months. Bentley has a pretty interesting personality so I’ll also enjoy sharing with you some of his perks and quirks. If there’s anything you’ve always wondered or any questions you may have about preparing a horse for the biggest event in the country please don’t hesitate to ask and I’ll try to cover it in my blog posts.
A big thank you to the Australian International Three Day Event for this opportunity and I look forward to taking you along on this journey with us!
