EOI to represent Australia in Trans-Tasman Endurance Event (New Zealand)

Equestrian Australia has received an invitation from Equestrian Sports New Zealand (ESNZ) for four riders to compete in a Trans‐Tasman Endurance Event scheduled for 29th November – 1st December 2019 in New Zealand. 

The event is a CEI 1* 80km and CEI 2* 120km and will take place at Waiouru in New Zealand’s North Island, hosted by the Ruahine Endurance Club.

The invitation is extended to an Australian Team of four riders:

  • to include a minimum of one Junior/Young Rider
