Set to change the face of Australian Show-jumping, the Australian Jumping Teams League (AJTL) is due to jump-off
this September. Based on the well-recognised Global Champions League the initial 2019 AJTL will be held over four
rounds. The competition will comprise of 10 teams of four riders, one of which must be under 25.
The jumping will be set at 1.40-1.45m with prize money on offer over $400,000, the richest in Australian history.
At EIAF we feel it is important to support equestrian sport within Australia and promote innovative ideas.
When we first heard about the AJTL, EIAF jumped straight on board and sponsored our own team.
1. Chris Chugg (Five-time Australian Champion & 10thWorld Cup Final Gothenburg 2016)
2. Gabi Kuna (Winner and placegetter of Multiple World Cup Rounds)
3. James Arkins (Winner of 4 World Cup Finals and experience competing in NZ & Europe)
4. Elliot Reeves (Under 25, hailing from the UK, 2ndGold Tour Qualifier Aquis Champions Tour 2019)
Challenging Team Equine International Airfreight will be: Chatham Park, Emcee Apparel, HorsePower, Kiernan
Haulage, Martin Collins Australia, Takapoto Estate, Yandoo Park, Oaks Sport Horses and Willinga Park. To add
further excitement and exposure, the producers of Jump Off are creating a new TV series called “All Clear” which will
cover the inaugural season of the AJTL. Following on from the brainwave of Michelle Lang-McMahon, who over the
past number of years has run the Aquis Champions Tour, Chatham Park have taken over the running of the AJTL,
focusing on Corporate Sponsorship. EIAF are excited to see the competition get under way and are enthusiastic to
see the AJTL and the sport of Show jumping evolve. You can folllow all the news and results @teamEIAF
