Mustad Saddleworld Sponsors Sydney CDI Prix St George CDN

Changes at the Sydney CDI have driven Australian achievement!

The competition has a proud history as the first CDI held in Australia. In 1992 the inaugural event took place at the NSW Equestrian Centre in Lochinvar, NSW and Australian dressage riders welcomed an event that was conducted under FEI rules with winners and placegetters accruing FEI ranking points, which gave Australian dressage, international recognition.

It took just two years for the Sydney CDI to outgrow its Hunter Valley venue, and a move to Sydney has seen the growth continue, making this show a highlight on the Australian dressage calendar and an important qualifier for National Championships, WEG, and Olympic selection.

Since the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000, the Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC) has been home to the Sydney CDI. The striking architecture of the dome-roofed arena, has delivered a fabulous atmosphere and the purpose-built facilities have provided a perfect venue for competitors, spectators, traders and supporters.

The Organising Committee has established a tradition of conducting a dressage judges’ seminar to support the continuing development of home-based officials. This initiative makes an important contribution to the program of the Australian Dressage Judges’ Education Panel and dressage judges and event organisers in all states enjoy the benefit of these educational sessions.

There is no doubt that the past quarter of a century has seen many changes. The focus on dressage at international level has brought forward some fantastic personal achievements, which have all served to highlight the strength of partnerships, friendships and the support of many people and organisations that are part of the Australian equine industry!

Without commercial support, progress would be limited to individual riders and horses, and limited to the resources and knowledge that they are able to access. Hobbyist and new fans would not have the benefit of purpose bred horses, specialist training for horse and rider, or access to the best products and equipment, designed specifically to make a difference to the way horses work and the ease of training and effective riding, which makes it possible to work with horses in a progressive and harmonious manner.

Mustad Saddleworld, Destination Equestrian is excited to offer our support to the Sydney CDI and Australian dressage riders. A first time sponsor last year, in 2017 we are proud to sponsor the Prix St George CDN. We acknowledge the role of this event in providing the highest level of competition, which is so important in keeping Australia on its upward trajectory to international success!
