Could there be any better way to mark the end of the summer season than with the brilliant Horse of the Year Show, packed full of national championship classes in showjumping and showing, as well as international showjumping competitions and fantastic displays?
HOYS 2018 is taking place on 3-7 October 2018 at the NEC in Birmingham and will be celebrating its 70th anniversary, having been held since 1949. The show always attracts a host of top riders, while this year the dressage masterclass will be hosted by the one and only Carl Hester.
Displays at this year’s show include the ever popular Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment Musical Ride and the Musical Drive of the Heavy Horses, plus a talented ‘troupe’ of equestrian vaulters including top names Hannah and Joanne Eccles, while Alizée Froment will be travelling from France to wow the crowds with her incredible bridle-less dressage display.
Horse & Hound will be reporting on the action as it happens, both during the show here on Horseandhound.co.uk and with a full magazine report on sale in the Thursday 11 October issue.
