2019 Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event
November 14 @ 8:00 am - November 17 @ 5:00 pm
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 jumping over three days on the same horse.
The MMAus3DE is the only CCI five 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 five star competition, but the event also caters for lower qualified competitors with a three star and four star competition. The MMAus3DE also features World Cup Jumping, Masterclasses, twilight equestrian entertainment, VIP Hospitality, and a comprehensive Market Place, which features more than 70 exhibitors from within the equestrian industry, as well as food vendors.
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.
