The SEIB Search for a Star showing classes for amateur riders at HOYS are always hotly contested. Here are pictures of this year's champions


Search for a Star is a showing championship which gives amateur riders and owners the opportunity to compete at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS), sponsored by equine insurance specialists SEIB.

In order to reach HOYS horse and rider combinations must qualify at one of the qualifying shows held around the UK. Run to the same standards as professional classes, competition is always fierce and many Search for a Star champions have gone to compete successfully in open classes.

Good luck to all of this year’s competitors at HOYS. Congratulations to all of the 2013 champions, whose pictures will be added to this gallery as they become available.
