Get your Royal International Horse Show tickets


  • “Have you got your Royal International Horse Show tickets yet?” It’s a common cry among the equestrian community at this time of year. While competitors travel around the country chasing their illusive qualifying “tickets”, spectators can purchase their tickets ahead of the event via the online ticket office, or they can be bought on arrival at the gate.

    The Agria Royal International Horse Show (RIHS) is one of the biggest outdoor shows in England. This year’s RIHS runs from 23–28 July at the All England Jumping Course at Hickstead in West Sussex.

    Royal International Horse Show tickets: what happens when?

    Entry is free on Tuesday 23 July while national showjumping and coloured showing classes take place in the outside rings.

    The show gets fully underway on Wednesday 24 July, with national classes starting the international arena action.

    International competition begins on Thursday 25 July. The only UK leg of the FEI Nations Cup takes place on Friday 26 July, Ladies’ Day on Saturday 27 July hosts the Queen Elizabeth II Cup and the richest class of the show – King George V Gold Cup – takes place on Sunday 28 July.
