The Adelaide Equestrian Festival is an annual equestrian event, as 70 equestrian athletes and their horses from around the country this year compete to secure a place in the Australian team for the upcoming Olympic Games in Paris.

The Adelaide Equestrian Event – across this weekend – takes in the heart of the Adelaide CBD, Victoria Park/Pakapakanthi and its surrounding parklands with the four-day festival showcasing the disciplines of Dressage, Cross Country and Show Jumping.

Gravity Media Australia has been appointed by Adelaide Horse Trials Management Inc to deliver the major technology, logistics and production undertaking for the event.

Adelaide Equestrian Festival Competition Director, Belinda Lindh said the AEF is excited to be working with Gravity Media Australia to deliver exceptional coverage of Australia’s premier equestrian event to the world.
