In its 83rd year, the Garryowen Equestrienne Turnout continues to be one of the most anticipated and celebrated show horse events on Australia's equestrian calendar. The event is named in memory of champion horse, Garryowen, whose owner Violet Murrel, one of Australia's foremost show riders, died trying to save him from a stable fire in 1934. Since then, the Garryowen Equestrienne Turnout has seen Australia's best female riders vying to win the prestigious trophy. The horses and riders are judged on saddlery, costume, general appearance, riding ability, manners, pace and conformation.
