NUNAWADING, Australia, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Horseland's sponsored riders performed in the recently concluded Melbourne International 3 Day Event; they competed with some of world's best equestrian athletes. First held in 1957, the event is regarded as one of Australia's premier equestrian competitions.
Held at the Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre, over the Queen's Birthday long weekend, the event was three days of entertainment for both the riders and the families who attended. The athletic event comprised of three phases: dressage, cross country, and showjumping. Participants had to compete over three days, with each day featuring a different discipline.
Horseland's sponsored riders successfully participated in all three categories. A few of the distinguished sponsored riders who attended the event are: Stuart Tinney, Rebekah McDougall, Belinda Isbister, Teegan Ashby, and Wilhelm Enzinger.
As Australia's biggest horse riding retailer, Horseland was established in 1978. The family run business grew to become Australia's largest network of stores for all things equestrian. "We're always aiming to be the heart of the equestrian community," says Kym West, Horseland's Online Marketing Coordinator, "so it was only natural that we have a sponsorship program to help talented riders get to events like this."
The Melbourne International 3 Day Event also offered additional outdoor and indoor activities for riders and children alike, including a trade exhibition, cross country course walks, pony rides, and equestrian education.
"It's been a great honour for us at Horseland to sponsor some of the best riders in this event. They have shown their complete dedication to the sport and that's why we're proud to be there to support them," adds Ms. West.
The event was covered by Horseland's team through their Facebook page where photos and videos of the riders during the tournament were reported on in real time.
