Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) logoThe Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) is upon us once again. Could there be any better way to mark the end of the summer season than with this brilliant show, packed full of national championship classes in showjumping and showing, as well as international showjumping competitions and fantastic displays?

HOYS 2016 is taking place from 5-9 October 2016 at the NEC in Birmingham and will attract top names from across the disciplines, including Olympic dressage champion Charlotte Dujardin and Rio showjumpers John and Michael Whitaker. Highlights at this year’s show will include the return of the musical drive of heavy horses, plus the West End cast of the spectacular musical MAMMA MIA! will appear as part of the finale on Sunday 9 October.

Horse & Hound will be reporting on the action as it happens, plus our showing blogger Chloe Chubb has a number of rides at the show. Our full magazine report will be on sale in Thursday 13 October issue.
