The London International Horse Show, Olympia (15-21 December) once again hosts a leg of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage series, supported by Horse & Hound.
The grand prix took place on Tuesday 15 December and you can replay the thoughts of Horse & Hound‘s dressage editor Alice Collins via our popular H&H Live service below.
Grand prix dressage at Olympia Horse Show
This year the H&H Live service will only be available during Tuesday’s grand prix. UK readers will be able to watch Wednesday’s freestyle via the BBC red button and online. The H&H team will be publishing a report about a class plus a video interview with the winning rider on HorseandHound.co.uk shortly after both dressage classes.
What is H&H Live?
For those who are not familiar with H&H Live, it is an interactive written commentary service that is updated as the riders are performing their tests. Readers can interact with H&H Live by posting comments and posing questions to the H&H Live team. It works on computer, smart phone and tablet. NB: H&H Live is NOT a live video stream.
Who was competing?
This year’s show saw the return of current world, Olympic and European champion, Charlotte Dujardin, riding Carl Hester’s London Olympics ride Uthopia, who will be competing for the first time since Windsor in May 2014.
Carl was in action on board his European silver medal-winning ride Nip Tuck, while Fiona Bigwood, Henriette Andersen and Lara Griffith completed the British line-up.
Leading the international contingent was The Netherlands’ Hans Peter Minderhoud on his chestnut gelding Glock’s Flirt. Find out who else was at Olympia.
