London Horse Show 2023

The London International Horse Show is a festive treat for horse fans that shouldn’t be missed. Attendance is a pre-Christmas ritual for much of the British horse world. A brilliant place to get into the festive spirit, while also doing a last-minute spot of Christmas shopping, the show really does have something for all members of the family as well as riders of all levels regardless of your prefered equestrian sport.

Held indoors at the Excel in London’s docklands (13-18 December), the London Horse Show hosts international showjumping, dressage and driving of the highest calibre, alongside crowd-pleasing displays and entertainment including dog agility, the Shetland Pony Grand National, the Musical Drive of the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Pride Of Portugal Lusitano display team.

This year’s show is introducing a second competition arena, which will be hosting the finals of the new London International Showing Series, giving amateur showing enthusiasts their first chance to compete at this prestigious show. The New Horizon Plastics London Arena will also host expert masterclasses, including one featuring Pippa Funnell and Tina Cook.

Horse & Hound’s team of expert equestrian journalists will be on hand to keep fans up to date with all the news in the run up to and throughout the show, including up-to-the-minute reports, interviews and more. To enjoy full access to our London International coverage and read beyond five articles, readers will need to buy a Horse & Hound website unlimited subscription.
