Whether you are a keen rider or simply like watch sporting events, The London International Horse Show has something for everyone.
The London International Horse Show at Olympia is one the most eagerly anticipated equestrian events of the year, which attracts over 80,000 visitors from across the globe and is a popular event to centre on a coach break to London.
Almost as big a Christmas tradition as Father Christmas and Turkey, it brings down the curtain on the equestrian season and is one of the only shows where you can watch world-class competitions in three disciplines.
Get up close and personal with horses and riders in the warm-up ring then enter the arena to see the world’s best riders, including Olympic superstars, compete in FEI World Cup™ Qualifiers in Show Jumping, Dressage and extreme Horse Driving, which always deliver edge of your seat action.
Perennial crowd favourites are always the electrifying Shetland Pony Grand National and The Kennel Club Dog Agility Competition, which never fail to put a smile on your face.
Not to forget its famous Christmas finale, a glittering spectacle where colourfully decorated horses, dancers, fireworks and music combine to create a spectacular climax to the show.
Aside from the live action there’s over 200 stall for you to peruse between competitions, where you can pick up last minute Christmas gifts and riding equipment.
The diversity of this show and the activities available is sure to get anyone in the festive spirit and end their year on a high.
