Why Should I Enter?

From saddle horse and riding classes to show jumping and harness horses, the all-encompassing Horses in Action competition takes place during the Royal Melbourne Show each year.

The Royal Melbourne Show Horses In Action Competition awards a number of prestigious trophies, including the coveted and historic Garryowen Perpetual Trophy. There are also generous cash and product prizes to be awarded to the best riders and horses. 

Those who visit the Show ring during the competition will see a variety of striking breeds on display, from Clydesdales to Shetland ponies. 

The catalogue of results will be available on the RASV Horses in Action webpage immediately after the competition. Major award winners will also be recognised in the following year’s schedule. 

Horses in Action Competition classes are divided by junior, intermediate and senior riders. 

This year, exhibitors can look forward to an improved Show experience, with more space for the Horses in Action precinct and a new timetable. All exhibitors will also receive unlimited entry to the Royal Melbourne Show for the full 11 days and access to the RASV Stockman’s Lounge.
With over $110,000 in cash and prizes on offer, as well as the prestige of winning a blue ribbon, there has never been a better time to get involved and turn exciting moments into unforgettable memories at the 2019 Royal Melbourne Show.
