Equestrian Australia (EA) is pleased to announce that Waratah Showjumping Inc has been selected to host the 2023 Australian Jumping Championships (AJC).
The event will be held at Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC) from 31 October to 5 November 2023. After 11 years, the AJC moves from Victoria to NSW and it will be the first time the Championships are held at SIEC.
The venue will undertake some major arena improvements in the time leading up to the AJC, including some work on two arenas at the north end of the venue.
Event Director Edwena Mitchell acknowledges the tremendous efforts and great success that Boneo Park have had over the past six, COVID interrupted, years and hopes to deliver another successful AJC in 2023.
“The 2023 AJC will be slightly different to previous years, as much due to the nature of the venue as anything else” says Edwena. There will only be two arenas and at this early stage of planning, the event will most likely be held over six days to accommodate all the Titles and Series.
Waratah Showjumping would like to thank the EA Jumping Committee for the opportunity to host the 2023 AJC. “There are big shoes to fill after 11 years in Victoria at two great venues and we thank the EA Jumping Committee for this opportunity and its support.” says Edwena.
