A team of four riders will travel from Australia to compete in the test against our own team, which will be on borrowed horses.

The Trans-Tasman Young Rider Challenge is an annual event that has traditionally been a gripping battle between the nations. Last year and 2018 this was won by New Zealand, in 2017 Australia won the test, and in 2016 it was won by New Zealand. We look forward to hosting another exciting and challenging test for our Young Riders in what is proving to be an exciting and even competition.
