Australia’s number one eventer Shane Rose, currently ranked fifth in the FEI World Eventing Athlete Rankings, will be riding high in the MIHT CCI3* competition hot off his win in Sydney in April.

Rose is set to start against fellow Olympians Sonja Johnson, Megan Jones, Amanda Ross and Stuart Tinney over the three-day event and returning 2013 CCI3* winner Katja Weimann.

Event Director Michael Hands said the calibre of entries this year’s Melbourne International Horse Trials has attracted is a testament to the standard of rider and horse quality in Australia.

“We are excited to welcome Australia’s best riders and horses to our event and to provide a platform for spectators to see international equestrian competition,” Mr Hands said.

Competition for a record $50,000 prize pool shared across the CCIJ1*, CCI1*, CCI2*, CCI3* classes is set to be fierce as over 160 riders from across Australia and New Zealand compete.

MIHT dressage will take place Friday and Saturday (6-7 June), cross-country will be on Sunday (8 June) and the final, deciding phase, show jumping will conclude the competition on Monday (9 June).

Eventgoers can enjoy ringside seats to take in the action on the course and there is a hospitality package to suite every taste. Tickets for this year’s event are on sale now via Ticketek.

I ride horses and compete in Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing or Horse Trials. I also own and run an Equestrian property to the East of Melbourne, Australia. In my spare time I run a couple of websites including http://www.horseoz.com and http://www.carinyapark.com. To afford all this I work a full time job, so the definition of spare time is usually after dark. Sleep is over rated ;-) In my Blogs I try to tell what I am doing with the horses, give some updates with regards to the equestrian events I am attending and any relevant news about horse health and performance. I also give reviews on any new products I get my hands on related to my horsey activities If yuo want to buy or sell horses or anything equestrian related try http://www.horseoz.com/forsale
