Dressage Day At Australian International
The Australian International 3-Day Event will get off to an exciting start tomorrow (Friday 13 November) with all the glamour, style and precision of the dressage competition in the main arena at Rymill Park.
The Haighs Dancing with the Stars Dressage Day includes the Olympic level CCI**** in the main arena at Rymill Park and the CCI** and CIC** competitions at Christian Brother College's Middle Oval.
Also tomorrow is the Dancing with the Stars Ladies Luncheon featuring a fashion parade showing stylish creations from Musto, Bonnetts, Denim Iniquity and Liza Emanuele along with a Masterclass with Olympic Judge Martin Plewa and a flamboyant Dressage to Music display by Spaniard Blas Lago on Northern Hector. Entry to Rymill Park is free after 5pm with twilight course walks being held, allowing spectators to walk the cross country course with Olympians and other top riders.
While road closures have been kept to a minimum for the Southern Hemisphere's most important equestrian event, a number of road closures are necessary to allow both spectators and horses to move safely through the parklands.
Bartels and Wakefield roads, from Dequetteville Terrace through to East Terrace, will be closed from 9am Friday 13 November to 6pm Sunday 15 November.
Event Director and Olympian Gillian Rolton says organisers have worked closely with Adelaide City Council to minimise traffic disruption.
With a record number of riders competing in this year's Australian International 3 Day Event, up to 30,000 people are expected to flock to Rymill Park to see some of horse riding's biggest stars over three days of action-packed competition from 13 to 15 November.
Olympic gold medallists Wendy Schaeffer and Stuart Tinney will battle it out against some of the biggest names in the equestrian world including silver medallists Shane Rose, Megan Jones and Sonja Johnson and defending champion in the Olympic level four star class, Christopher Burton, at the event. More than 110 riders have entered the event, up from 80 riders who competed last year.
