🐴 A Christmas treat for equestrian fans the London International Horse Show returns to Olympia for seven days of performances. Tickets are on sale.
The only UK show to host all three FEI World Cup Qualifiers in dressage, showjumping and driving, Olympia is the place to be this week for international equestrian competition at its very best.
Taking place 16-22 December each daily performance includes top-class equestrian competition along with a variety of displays from around the world.
The world’s best riders are expected to attend the show with highlights including FEI Dressage World Cup Grand Prix on Monday and FEI Dressage World Cup Freestyle to Music on Tuesday. On Wednesday all eyes will be on the Cayenne Puissance – last year won by Britain’s leading lady rider, Laura Renwick – while on Friday the FEI Driving World Cup takes centre stage. Across the weekend the FEI Jumping World Cup and Driving World Cup feature on Saturday night while the pinnacle of the week’s showjumping is the unmissable Turkish Airlines Olympia Grand Prix taking place on Sunday’s final night.
Alongside the equestrian action there’s also the famous Shopping Village containing over 250 shops to enjoy. Selling a wide range of goods from all things equestrian, to fashion, jewellery, wines, gifts, novelty items, and fine art, the village will have something for everyone.
