The aim of the inaugural EQUITANA New Zealand Open is simple, gather the best combinations from both sides of the Tasman, challenge them in the toughest possible way, and provide a world-class platform for them to showcase theirskills.
That’s just what we’ve done for the jumping and dressage crowns.
Friday night’s EQUITANA New Zealand Open features top-flight jumping Grand Prix and dressage freestyle to music.
There is an elite list of combinations taking part in the Harrison Lane Jumping Grand Prix, including three-time Australian Senior Showjumping Champion Jamie Kermond and his compatriot Jess Brown, who was shortlisted for the 2016 Rio Olympics. They will be taking on some of New Zealand’s finest, in Olympians Maurice Beatson, Katie Laurie and Clarke Johnstone, as well as the current holder of the Olympic Cup Lily Tootill and a raft of others.
It’s no different in the ATEED Dressage Freestyle to Music where former Australian National Dressage Champions Rozzie Ryan and Brett Parbery go head-to-head with Rio Olympian Julie Brougham, New Zealand’s first-ever FEI World Cup dressage finalist Wendi Williamson, current New Zealand National Dressage Champion John Thompson, reining Dressage Horse of the Year title holder Abbie Deken and others.
