12. It’s the only chance to see FEI world cup dressage in the UK
A ticket to Olympia will mean your chance to see the UK’s only FEI world cup dressage leg, (supported by Horse & Hound). There are two phases to the competition, firstly the grand prix that takes place on the opening day, Monday 17, and from that 15 competitors are taken through to the kür (dressage to music) on the Tuesday 18.
If you’re a dressage purist and hate crowds order a ticket for Monday’s grand prix. The shopping village doesn’t open until Tuesday so it’ll be a little quieter. If you opt for Tuesday’s dressage to music, you’ll also have the chance to shop (after 2.30pm) and see some other displays.
