Equestrian In The Park brings together the sophistication of equestrian sport, together with summer style! Smart casual attire is recommended, with denim to be avoided. Ladies are reminded that the event is located entirely on a grass surface so wedges or flats may be more suitable for the occasion. Don’t forget, there are some fantastic prizes on offer for those that really stand out!!


Equestrian In The Park is proud to again announce one of the biggest prize pools in the Southern Hemisphere! More details on 2018’s exciting prizes will be announced very soon! Huge prizes are on offer for competitors, as well as those in the crowd during the coveted ‘Fashions On The Field’.


Equestrian In The Park is the pinnacle Eventing and Show Jumping Grand Prix event in Western Australia, with a first class field of riders including Olympic competitors from Western Australia, Australia and around the World. It is a one day arena format combining both Eventing and Show Jumping, allowing audiences to view these sports right up close!
questrian In The Park is not only a showcase of these spectacular sports, but is also set to be the social event of the season, as Perth’s social elite celebrate and relax in style and comfort, in what is the royal sport of choice.

Show Jumping

In 2018, Equestrian In The Park is also pleased to announce that the sport of Show Jumping will also be introduced to the program, seeing the sport’s elite riders and their horses compete for the first time on the banks of the Swan River!


Much like a triathlon, eventing is considered the ultimate horse sport. Originating from military roots the competition was created to demonstrate the versatility and strength of a working horse in the cavalry.
In it’s full version, this exciting and dynamic competition requires horse and rider to contest three phases over three days. The first phase consists of a dressage test — a series of movements executed and judged on accuracy and quality. The second phase is a gruelling and testing cross country course that requires both horse and rider to be in excellent physical shape and to be brave and trusting of each other. They must jump a series of solidly built natural obstacles and gallop over 5 km of cross country tracks within a set time limit. In the final phase the combination proves their technical jumping skills and athleticism over a series of jumps that collapse when touched.

Equestrian in the Park is bringing all the best of an Eventing and Show Jumping event, and condensing them into the spectacle of what is the 20/20 cricket version of both of these sports, in true Grand Prix style! Welcome to Equestrian In The Park!
