UNIQUE EVENT:  The Mildura Horse Trials offers a unique opportunity for horses and riders, with the day preceding the Horse Trials offering a stand-alone dressage competition with a comprehensive list of competitive and eventing tests.  Also on offer on Friday is a freshman’s jumping competition with heights from 45cm – 105cm.  A great chance for horses to become comfortable in the surroundings and for riders to take advantage of a practice run prior to the event!  Friday afternoon/evening also showcases both junior and senior 6 Bar competitions with great prizemoney on offer.

CROSS COUNTRY COURSE:     Originally a Ewan Kellett designed course, the past few years have seen some terrific updates made by Mick Pineo.  The course winds through the bush on tracks with good sandy footing, out onto an open course with much of the course able to be seen from the main clubroom area. Always new jumps throughout the course.  A good mix of training and challenging fences.

·   YARDS - Overnight yards available.  Wooden and metal. Limited number. Yards must be booked and paid for with entries on Nominate.  NO HOLDS.  Metal yards are located near finish of XC course and some also out in the Unpowered Camping 1 'own yard' area, so you can camp near your friends if you have a mix between you of own and needing yards.  But you must stipulate your camping buddies on your entry so we can try and group those camping together who have a mixture of own and booked yards.  We promise we will do our best but can't guarantee.  Metal yards are NOT near the front gate or powered sites (only wooden yards are near powered sites) so please consider when making booking. Yards have a good base but if required, bedding (straw) and shavings can be purchased via Nominate. Yards MUST be left clean, all manure and straw to be placed in the trailers or bags provided. Please report any damage to yards to an event official. NO horses are to be yarded in the round yard or any other enclosed arenas on the grounds. DO NOT PLACE MANURE OR STRAW AROUND TREES as they are dying from this.  They are natives and don't need manure to stay healthy.  Please notify event official if trailers need emptying.  BYO yards welcome in designated area only - must comply with EA regulations.  See site map for yard and camping locations.

·   STABLES - No stables this year, as they will be being used by racehorses (we use the Racecourse's stable blocks) for the Mildura Cup Racing Carnival.  Some off-site options are available in Mildura.

·   FACILITY FEE - A $20 compulsory facility fee is payable (per rider). 100% of this goes towards targeted facility upgrades. Replacement of wooden yards with metal ones, new dressage arenas, our own showjumping equipment and new XC jumps are current priorities.

·   CAMPING - Unpowered camping is available FREE, but must still be 'booked' to ensure you are allocated parking.  A very limited number of powered sites are available at a cost of $40 for the duration of the event and are in addition to the compulsory facility fee. Powered camping spots will be individually allocated.  Bookings for powered sites can only be made with a full event booking (ie. they cannot be booked in advance or held.  Any entries for powered sites only, will be cancelled).  Conditions of powered site use are that only 10 amp power leads are to be used, and are to be tested and tagged to prevent electrical fires.

·    GENERATOR CURFEW - Due to a high level of feedback from competitors, a generator curfew  of 10pm will be in place.  There is to be no generator use between 10pm and 6am. Please consider fellow competitors regarding this.

·   CAMPFIRES - Campfires are permitted but must be made in the fire drums provided, minimum of 6m from horse yards and must be supervised by an adult AT ALL TIMES.  There is a limited amount of fire drums and firewood available. No leftover wood to be removed from ground (don't laugh, has happened). Please be considerate of others and if you are intending on using a campfire continuously, contribute your own wood. 

·   TOILETS & SHOWERS - Toilets and showers are available on-site. Our showers use tank water, so please keep your shower short and sharp to ensure we have enough water for everyone. 

·   CATERING - Our friends at Ziggy's Cafe will be onsite Friday, Saturday & Sunday for breakfast, lunch, snacks and coffee. Ziggy's is also catering Saturday night dinner (pre-booking via Nominate is a must).

Unofficial Show Jumping Day
Friday 23rd July, 2021

  This year we will again be offering unofficial showjumping classes on Friday.  Numbers are restricted.  A great chance to familiarise young horses with the arena they'll be jumping in for the Horse Trials (except EV50, which is in arena next door but still good practice!). These are very popular and will sell out quickly.

Height Classes:


Entry via Nominate. Cost is $15 per horse, with a maximum of two rounds. Riders to select which height classes they will be riding in on the day (see gate steward) but strictly NO ENTRY ON THE DAY. No placings awarded. Riders may complete their two rounds at the same height.

Friday Evening Feature Event - Six Bar

Lots of fun for riders and spectators.  Junior and Open division. Junior riders can choose to enter the Junior or Open, but cannot enter in both. Horses may only be entered in one class. Entry is $20 per horse for Junior and Open, payable via Nominate or on the day (numbers permitting). Run under the 2021 EA National Jumping Rules, Article 262.3. Fun environment, come and have a go, whether you're out for the win or just to school your horse - not too many places you can enter a 6 Bar these days!!  Ribbons to 6th place.
