The Australian International 3 Day Event has been held in the Park Lands since 1997 and is a premier equestrian competition of international standard. It is the only Olympic CCI (Concours Complet International) four star event held in Australia, the only one held in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only six held across the world. Adelaide has been the chosen host city of this Hallmark Equestrian event. In 2011 it became part of the HSBC FEI World Pro Tour Series.
Adelaide receives world-wide media coverage, including television, through the hosting of this event.
The competition involves three phases, dressage, cross country and show jumping that horse and rider combinations must successfully complete.
Past winners have included Olympic gold and silver medallists Wendy Schaeffer, Stuart Tinney, Megan Jones and Shane Rose.
The main competition will take place in Victoria Park/Bakkabakkandi. This will also be the location of additional activities including a trade village, food and wine, children’s entertainment and corporate hospitality.
The cross country course will wind its way through Victoria Park/Bakkabakkandi and Ityamaiitpinna (Park 15) to Rymill Park/Mullawirraburka for the lake jump where additional activities on the Saturday will include a small trade village, food and wine, and corporate hospitality.
Approximately 100 horses will be stabled in temporary stables at Victoria Park/Bakkabakkandi which will also be the base for approximately 200 riders and grooms. Riders and grooms remain onsite to maintain the welfare and security of the horses. Competitors will start arriving from Monday 19 November 2012 and will depart by Monday 26 November 2012.
