The event has been running for 41 years and continues to provide a fabulous course and venue on beautiful gum-studded undulating land.

With our new 1, 2 and 3 star tracks and updating of the lower grades, this year’s competition will be exciting and fresh for all our competitors. For the first time we are continuing a 'Newcomers' competition for both our grass roots riders and also the more experienced riders that wish to bring along their young horses.

We are also really excited to introduce the Australian CIC/CCI Challenge. This challenge is open to all combinations in the 1, 2 and 3 star classes that are competing at both Naracoorte and the Melbourne Three-Day Event in June. The Challenge points will be awarded to combinations at Naracoorte and Melbourne and the winner must compete at both events to be eligible. More information is available on our website www.naracoortehorsetrials.com.

Finally but most excitingly, we are reintroducing a Young Rider State Team competition. We have invited all our States to participate in sending a team of Young Riders to compete within the CIC1* competition. So far the response has been very encouraging so if you're a young rider and would like to represent your state, this is your opportunity.

We are continuing to build on changes and improvements from last year and are looking forward to hosting an even better event this year from the Cross-Country to the catering and Trade Fair. There will be something for everyone and we look forward to seeing you there.
