Giltrap Audi Premier Jumping Festival 

Information for Spectators 


Escape the city and be a part of the equestrian action at the Archibald and Shorter World Cup Festival Jumping Festival 13 - 14th of  January 2024.


Saturday we will have some great classes in four arenas with the main events being held in the grass arena including the Pro Am Rider Class,  Young Rider, Pony Grand Prix and the feature class the Rhodes Family 1.40m Championship.


Sunday’s entertainment in the main show jumping arena kicks off with our speed Charity Challenge class which is a real crowd pleaser, this kicks off at 12pm sharp.


The main event of the show on Sunday the 14th will follow on from the Charity Challenge - The Archibald and Shorter World Cup Final with the estimated start time of 2pm.  This will see horse and rider combinations battle it out over two rounds, in what should be a very exciting competition.  With $2000 up for grabs to the winner we know that everyone will be giving it their best shot!


Bring the whole family with a picnic and spread out on the grassy banks surrounding the main arena to enjoy the action or alternatively food and drink is available for purchase onsite.
