2019 Australian Interschool Championships
Equestrian NSW are hosting the 2019 Australian Interschool Championships, which will be held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre from Friday 27th of September to Wednesday 2nd of October 2019.
Competitors, aged 5-18 years old, are required to qualify through from the State Interschool Championships to the Australian Interschool Championships.
The event is continuing to grow year on year and is a major focus for young equestrians. It is the largest equestrian grassroots program delivered nationally in Australia.
The primary objective of Equestrian Australia is the development of horse sports from the participation level to the high performance level. Interschool comprises a competition and educational pathway for young athletes to participate in equestrian sport during their primary and secondary school years. The State Branches of Equestrian Australia co-ordinate the organisation of Interschool competition and training, with the aim of promoting education and sportsmanship to student athletes, educating athletes in horsemanship and horse management, and creating a competitive sporting environment.
The disiplines for the competition include Dressage, Eventing, Combined Training, Show Jumping and Show Horse.
