For the first time ever, a vineyard horse show will feature as part of the Crush Festival, allowing families a taste of country living and style.

Hosted by Tomich Wines, the ‘Pony in the Vines’ Equestrian SA High Point Show is part of a weekend long program and is the family pick of the Crush festival, held Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January.

Tomich Wines Managing Director, Randal Tomich says families will enjoy this rare opportunity to be a front row spectator at a horse show, as well as participate in fun activities like pony and hay bales rides through the vineyard.

“It’s a pleasure for us to invite families to meet some of our state’s best horses and their riders. My brother and I were lucky enough to grow up on the farm with horses, which have also played a huge part of our own children’s upbringing. We’re really excited that we can make this experience more accessible to the public and help create memories for other families too,” he says.

ABOUT THE Equestrian SA High Point Show:

The Pony in the Vines Equestrian SA High Point Show will showcase South Australia’s finest horses and national equestrian riders, set in the Tomich family’s private vineyard in Woodside. A day of equestrian elegance, this is perfect for horse lovers and families who’ve always wanted to learn more about these magnificent animals.

Over 60 horses will be participating in this qualifying event, which assesses them on being beautifully conformed, of high quality, movement and lovely manners.

The show includes a fancy dress and a novelty component for the horses – think plaited and coloured horse tails, crazy costumes, top hats and ribbons. Riders (aged from five years – senior) will also be dressed up in their official horse showing finery – including hacking jackets, fancy dress and cravats.

ABOUT PONY IN THE VINES:

This Crush Festival, Tomich Wines opens their family’s private 320-acre vineyard to the public for a family themed weekend, with a program created for adults, children, food and wine lovers alike.

Parents can sip Tomich’s new season release of trophy winning wines under the shade of tents and umbrellas while children can play on the picturesque vineyard lawns. A family friendly menu from local Adelaide Hills restaurant Locavore will delight, with sweet treats by The Crepe Cart and Bean Revolution Coffee.

A relaxed weekend for the families, pony rides, face painting and even hay rides in the vineyard are also on offer for just a gold coin donation going towards Riding for the Disabled SA (TBC).
