It’s back! In celebration of 20 years of EQUITANA, The Mane Event will make its much-anticipated return to the ‘mane’ stage of the Aqualuma Grand Pavilion. This action-packed night for the whole family will be a highlight of the four days of EQUITANA Melbourne 2018, so don’t miss a moment of it.

Sam Powers, the five-time Magician of the Year and Australia’s top contemporary illusionist, has promised to deliver EQUITANA Melbourne a visual masterpiece that has been refined to perfection. People describe the partnership between rider and horse as “magic” – the feeling of riding – but the magic Sam Powers has in store for the EQUITANA Mane Event is on a whole different level. You will truly not believe your eyes when Sam performs his magic and illusions that will blow your mind and make you question your reality.

David Manchon is back and will debut a slice of his new show, putting both his horsemanship and showmanship skills on full display. The natural born entertainer and star of sell out shows around Australia including “Australian Outback Spectacular” and “The Rooftop Express”, will kick off the EQUITANA Mane Event and whip everyone into a frenzy!

We’re pleased to announce that David can also be seen performing on the other three days of EQUITANA Melbourne too, so check your program for times.

Double Dan Horsemanship will take centre stage in the Aqualuma Grand Pavilion with a show that includes horsemanship, trick riding, comedy and a whole lot more! From the creative equine genius of Dan Steers and Dan James, Double Dan Horsemanship always takes the crowd on an incredible journey, while demonstrating the amazing partnership they have with their horses. This entertaining duo will leave you wanting more and more.

The Mane Event in the Aqualuma Grand Pavilion commences at 7.30pm.
