While horse racing may have left the park, Pakapakanthi (meaning “to trot”) still reflects its name by annually hosting the Australian International Three Day Event, Australia’s premier equestrian event.

First held in the Park Lands in 1997, it is one of only five four-star events in the world. Off to our left towards Wakefield Road you can see some semi-permanent jumps that form part of the cross country course, which also takes in the neighbouring Parks 14 and 15. When the event is held each November many other horse hurdles and course markings are moved into the Park Lands.
