In its 108th year the London International Horse Show is back with its huge Christmas party which brings in internationally acclaimed riders to the city and over 400 horses too. Olympic Gold Medallists and horse lovers from around the UK and beyond arrive to enjoy world cup competitions, amazing displays, festive entertainment and there is even a shopping village to enjoy.
The event is being held at the Olympia and has become known as the Olympia Horse and it is taking place between 15th and 21st December. Reaching the Olympia from Heathrow is no problem, as you can just pick up your Easirent hire car and drive 30 minutes into the city and you’re there.
The London International Horse Show brings The Household Cavalry Musical Ride for viewers and also The Shetland Pony Grand National and The Kennel Club’s Agility Competition. There will also be a performance from the world’s most famous horse whisperer Jean-Francois Pignon.
The shopping village will be packed with both festive and equestrian accessories including everything from fashion items to jewellery and novelty and fun pieces. The timetable of events is designed to all visitors can pack in as much as possible so if you choose to watch the dog’s agility, for example, you will still be able to see many horses and riders performing too.
The Olympia Horse Show has a fab festive theme and it is a chance to enjoy a huge range of animal-focused fun with a Christmassy theme and of course, the horses take centre stage.
