Wilson Sisters at Equidays

Will you be the winner of the inaugural Equidays Top Talent competition? Have you and your horse/s got what it takes to wow and entertain a crowd? If so this is your chance to showcase your skills and be in to win a share of the $5,000 prize purse. 


Hosted by Amanda Wilson and judged by a panel of expert judges including her sister Vicki, be prepared to be wowed and entertained by this group of remarkable equines and their human trainers. The three sisters are excited to bring this competition to the public and are looking forward to the calibre of horsemanship they are sure to see.


Equidays Top Talent will celebrate the depth of talent in the equine sector and allow handlers to show off their skills. Let your imagination run wild – one horse or a team, big or small, ridden or liberty, anything goes! There will be two divisions, one Youth and one Open, and the winner of each division will receive a special Equidays dress rug.


This event is open to professional and amateur horse trainers - and don't worry, the Wilson Sisters are judging not competing!


Spectator tickets will be available from Tuesday 1 August.
