Fans of equestrian sports will be galloping as fast as they can to the Olympia Exhibition Centre in west London this December, as the International Horse Show comes to town.
Running from December 16th to 22nd, the show will feature a number of fantastic performances from around the world, and will also include competitions in categories such as dressage, jumping and driving.
Among the highlights of this year’s International Horse Show is a performance from the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, which will be making its first appearance in the UK for 40 years.
Those attending the event will have the chance to see the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art’s performance twice a day, with plenty of other fantastic displays taking place in between.
For example, the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National is scheduled to be held daily, while a number of special Christmas themed events are also being put together.
These include the Christmas Pudding Stakes International Show Jumping Class, as well as the show’s grand finale, which this year will be entitled ‘It’s A Dickens of a Christmas’.
Dog lovers will also have lots to keep them entertained at the International Horse Show, with the Kennel Club Dog Agility Competition running across the seven days of the event.
The show will open with a gala evening on the 16th, featuring the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Leg, and tickets for all days of the International Horse Show are currently on sale.
The Olympia Exhibition Centre can be accessed from a number of tube stations, including Hammersmith, Barons Court, Earl’s Court and Kensington Olympia.
