Showjumping as we see it today, originated in Italy around the beginning of the Century. An Olympic sport, showjumping has emerged as an entertaining and exciting Equestrian sport - it is rated as the second most popular spectator sport in Britain.

Showjumping is an excellent test of the fitness, training and courage in partnership between horse and rider. As well as jumping cleanly, a showjumper must be responsive and maneuverable between obstacles and able to make tight turns at speed.

EQUITANA is proud to host the "World Head to Head Showjumping Championships" , to be held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre on Sunday 25 November 2001. This format of Showjumping sees two riders competing simultaneously on mirrored courses in a single arena. The aim for each rider is to complete and be first to cross the finish line over their designated course without faults.

This event is invitational, attracting 16 national, elite Showjumping riders who will compete for a prize pool of $35,000.
