The Melbourne International 3 Day Event (MI3DE) has a long and proud history as the proving ground for many of our best Olympic horses and riders. Australia boasts a long and successful Olympic history in eventing. For 55 years, M3DE has proudly provided world class riders and horses with first class competition.
Incorporating a great weekend of entertainment over the Queen's Birthday long weekend this event is a highlight on the Australian eventing rider's calendar. Comprising three phases; dressage, cross country and showjumping, Three Day Eventing is one of the most challenging and exciting equestrian sports. International 3 Day Events are graded according to level of difficulty with stars awarded to indicate the Event's grading. Melbourne International 3 Day Event is a 3 Star, the second highest grade, only surpassed in difficulty by events such as the Olympic and World Equestrian Games. In 2012 M3DE will host a World Cup Dressage Qualifier, a selection event for the 2012 London Olympics. This will feature Australia's top dressage riders and horses competing for world ranking points and the opportunity for Olympic selection.
Conducted in the beautiful surrounds of Werribee Park Mansion and the National Equestrian Centre, only half an hour from Melbourne, Melbourne 3DE is not to be missed. Spectators are well catered for with the dressage and showjumping phases held indoors at the equestrian centre. The cross country course winds through the State Rose Garden and formal grounds of Werribee Park Mansion. Outdoor hospitality marquees on the Cross Country Course plus an enormous and expanded enclosed trade village, food court, educative masterclasses, and entertainment ensure an eventful weekend for all!
