See Britain’s equestrian medallists at Olympia this Christmas

  • Britain’s Olympic and Paralympic equestrian heroes will take part in a medal parade at Olympia this December.

    Medallists from the senior, young rider, junior and pony equestrian teams in all disciplines will take part in a special medal parade at the show on Saturday evening (20 December).
    Britain’s equestrian teams have enjoyed huge success across Europe and in Hong Kong. Double bronze Olympic medallist event rider Tina Cook will appear, together with the victorious para equestrian teams and young rider eventing gold medallist Emily Llewellyn.

    The parade will take place at 8.15pm after the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National. It will be choreographed by Team GB’s performance director Will Connell.

    Will said: “It’s a great honour to have the opportunity to parade at Olympia, in front of an audience that is traditionally so supportive.

    “The whole of our equestrian team should be proud of their achievements and there’s no better way to thank the public for their support.”

    Tickets for Olympia start at £23. Visit www.olympiahorseshow.com for more information.
