Australia has come a long way in the sport of eventing. From humble beginnings to podium finishes, Australia now always stands as a team with medal contention. A new eventing documentary, Riding High, chronicles Australian eventing history, following the inspiring stories of Australia’s pioneer eventers. Producers announced this week that the film will be shown this week at the World Equestrian Games on Wednesday at 2:10 p.m. and Saturday at 2:30 p.m in the World Expo Equine Theatre.
The film was produced in conjunction with the 60thAnniversary celebrations of the Sydney International Horse Trails, and have since been recognized as a finalist at the New York EQUUS Film Festival in 2017, now touring WEG.
You’ll hear from members of the ground-breaking Stockholm (1956) and Rome (1960) Australian Olympic eventing teams, including interviews with Olympians Bunty Thompson, Neale Lavis and Wayne Roycroft.
This is one of those feel good stories of everyday people achieving the extraordinary. Check out the trailer above, and don’t miss the full screening at WEG:
