  • Sancette/Gitte Donvig

Boneo Park Managing Director Fiona Selby is looking forward to a weekend of top-class Dressage action.

“Boneo Park is delighted to offer the CDI-W class in conjunction with our regular Winter Championships to enable Australian based riders the opportunity to qualify for the World Equestrian Games without the expense and significant time investment of travelling to Europe for qualification as has been the case in previous years,” said Selby.  

“We are grateful for the support of so many riding families and businesses who have sponsored this event and enabled the CDI classes to take place - it is really heart-warming to receive such support from the dressage community.”

Equestrian Australia Dressage Committee Chair Prue Spurrett said;

“Our WEG contenders take centre stage this week and it’s their last opportunity on Australian soil to consolidate their performances for selection.”

The event also coincides with the launch of the Passage to Tryon fundraising initiative that provides the public with the opportunity to buy in and be part of the Australian team campaign. All money raised will be evenly split and distributed to the four riders who ultimately make the Australian Dressage Team at WEG regardless of whether they are Australian or European based.
