Event to celebrate 20th Anniversary in 2017

This year is a particularly important year for the Australian International Three Day Event, as the event will celebrate its 20th anniversary!

The Adelaide International Horse Trials was born in 1997 to replace the Gawler Horse Trials that had been staged at Gawler, north of Adelaide, since 1954.

The new event debuted in Adelaide’s East Parklands with a Three Star rating but was subsequently upgraded to a Four Star rating in 2002 to become the only event of this calibre in the Southern Hemisphere.

The competition was relaunched and renamed the Australian International 3 Day Event (aus3de) in 2007 to celebrate the events tenth anniversary and better reflect the international focus of the competition. In 2011,the Aus3de became a part of the World ‘Pro Tour of eventing the FEI Classics Series.

Today, the Aus3de is Australia’s premier equestrian competition. It is the only CCI four star event held in Australia, the only one held in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only six held across the world. For the past twelve years, Adelaide has been the chosen host city of this Hallmark Equestrian event. 

Aus3de proudly takes its place alongside the other great international four star events, the Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event in the United States in April, Mitsubishi 
Badminton Horse Trials in England in May, Luhmuhlen in Germany in June, Burghley Horse Trials back in the UK in September and Pau in France in October.

This year, Event Director, Mrs Gillian Rolton, will also celebrate 10 years as Event Director for the Aus3de. With a successful riding career, including two gold medals at Barcelona and Atlanta Olympic Games, Gill Rolton became Event Director of the Au3de in 2006.

In the past 10 years, the event has seen many changes under Gill's guidance, including new sponsors, international riders, new events, improved corporate hospitality and much more. Her passion for the sport of eventing and the event has been extraordinary, and the event would not be what it is today without her leadership.
