Horses In Action


The 2021 Horses-in-Action competition will present some of the finest horses in Australia. Over nine days riders, drivers, ponies and horses comprising hacks, harness and show jumpers will compete for an ultimate Championship in every section. The Royal Adelaide Show also attracts the highest calibre of show-jumping horses and riders together with the prestigious qualifying round of the World Cup Jumping Competition.

This year, in support of our exhibitors, consideration will be given to all performances made during the extended performance period of 1 May 2019 to 16 May 2021. The RA&HS encourages all willing exhibitors (especially first-time novice) to enter for 2021 and the Horse Committee will work to take all information into account in the fairest way that can when offering acceptance of entry for the 2021 Show.

To celebrate the Champions, 2021 will introduce a BEST IN SHOW award. This award will be selected from the Champion Pony Hack, Champion Pony Hunter, Champion Galloway Hack, Champion Galloway Hunter, Champion Hack and Champion Hunter and sees the winner taking home a $1000 prize.

A brand new site layout will also be showcased in 2021, which will be the first use of the newly fabricated stables and lockers and online stable/locker bookings through Nominate, an on-line equestrian platform. This is an exciting time for all involved in the Horse Competition and we look forward to welcoming you to the Adelaide Showground in September.

Please ensure that you have read the Horses In Action Competition Schedule before you submit your entries. To complete your application online, you must supply your credit card details. MasterCard or Visa. Unfortunately we do not accept American Express and Diners Cards.
