Media Release

31 October 2018

The Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event (MMAus3DE) is Australia’s premier equestrian event and one of only two international sporting events held in Adelaide annually.  The equestrian 3 day event – commonly known as ‘Eventing’ is the triathlon of horse sport comprising the three phases of dressage, cross country and show jumping over three days on the same horse.

The MMAus3DE is the only CCI four star event in Australia, which is held to the same elite standard as the Olympics, the only one held in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only six held across the world.

The Adelaide event however is unique in the world, being the only one staged in the heart of a vibrant city centre, with Victoria Park the home of the competition, and the cross country course winding its way around Adelaide’s picturesque East Parklands.

The pinnacle of the MMAus3DE is the four star competition, but the event also caters for lower qualified competitors with a two star and three star competition. Event Director Belinda Lindh says : ‘the 2 and 3 star categories provide such an amazing opportunity for riders and horses to experience the atmosphere of an International event, providing the pathways to those higher levels of competition”.

The MMAus3DE also features entertainment, VIP Hospitality, Coopers Blush Bar, Market Place Shopping Village (features more than 70 exhibitors from within the equestrian industry), Pop Up Market, Kids Corral Activity area, Last Jump After Party as well as a food court and wine bars.

Situated a stone’s throw from the Adelaide CBD, the Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event provides an amazing weekend of entertainment with a great atmosphere, that continues to draw people from all over the State, Australia and the world to attend.
