Jump to the latest showjumping news, reports and opinion from Horse & Hound

Showjumping at OlympicsWith Scott Brash still holding the top spot in the world rankings and plenty of up-and-coming young talent waiting in the wings, there’s lots to look forward to in 2015.

The winter showjumping season reaches its climax in Las Vegas, USA, (15-19 April) with the Longines FEI World Cup final. No British riders have qualified, but all eyes will be on Ireland’s 19-year-old Bertram Allen.

This year, all roads lead to the European Championships in Aachen, Germany (11-23 August) so new performance manager Di Lampard will be selecting her Nations Cup teams carefully in order to field a championship team that can reclaim the gold medal won in Denmark in 2013. But, most importantly, Olympic 2016 qualification is at stake. We’ll be bringing you all the team news and updates as it happens.

Closer to home, the Blue Chip Championships (8-12 April) marks the end of the domestic winter season and, when the huge number of riders currently contesting the European sunshine circuits return, the outdoor showjumping kicks off in full force once again. We’ve got the usual calendar of top class events on home soil including Hickstead, the London leg of the Global Champions Tour, Bolesworth and several new events to look forward to.
