Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event 14th – 17th November 2019 moves to 5 Stars!
As of the 1st of January 2019, the Australian International 3 Day Event, along with Badminton, Burghley, Kentucky, Pau and Luhmuhlen, have all moved to the new FEI classification system and are now designated CCI5*-L events.
The Adelaide International Horse Trials was born in 1997 to replace the Gawler Horse Trials that had been staged at Gawler, north of Adelaide, since 1954. The new event debuted in Adelaide’s East Parklands with a Three Star rating but was subsequently upgraded to a Four Star rating in 2002 to become the only event of this calibre in the Southern Hemisphere.
The competition was relaunched and renamed the Australian International 3 Day Event (Aus3de) in 2007 to celebrate the event’s tenth anniversary and better reflect the international focus of the competition.
In 2017 the event was renamed the Mitsubishi Motors Australian International 3 Day Event to reflect the fantastic sponsorship from Mitsubishi Motors.
