Join us for the equestrian adventure of a lifetime.

Upon receipt of your letter of invitation a NON-refundable deposit of 20% of full nomination fee must be paid within seven days to secure your place in the Gobi Desert Cup.

Nomination fees: Total: AUD$10,000. Payments will be made using our secure PayPal link.

The payment schedule: 20% deposit to secure your spot if accepted for the event and balance due by 10th August 2019. Late payment will accrue 7% p.a. interest calculated daily. *You may also choose to pay the full nomination. Please contact info@gobidesertcup.com for information on a 2020 installment plan.

We have a no-refund policy; therefore, we encourage riders to insure their nomination fee.


We request a short video (preferably with a horse) to us a little about you, your experience with horses, why you’d like to ride the Gobi Desert Cup, and what you look forward to most. This should be sent by email to Ride Director Camille Champagne at info@gobidesertcup.com.
