Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) logoHorse of the Year Show, commonly refered to as HOYS within the equestrian community, marks the end of the summer season with national championship classes in showjumping and showing, as well as international showjumping competitions.

This year’s show takes place from 8-12 October at the NEC in Birmingham. The show typically attracts many top riders, with world number one showjumper Scott Brash among those heading to the 2014 show. Find out who else will be competing.

In the showing world, few things top riding down the centre line in the HOYS spotlight, as our showing blogger Loraine Homer recently explained. Both Loraine, her daughter Alice and our showing amateur Chloe Chubb will be competing at the show. We wish them all the very best of luck and look forward to seeing how they get on.
