The Longines Royal International Horse Show

29th July - 3rd August 2014


At the venerable old age of 105, the Longines Royal International Horse Show (Patron: Her Majesty the Queen), the Official Horse Show of the British Horse Society, is one of the oldest horse shows in the world.


A championship show, it is the pinnacle of months of qualifiers up and down the country, across many different equestrian disciplines. It is also the only chance to watch Team GB compete on home turf, as host to the only Nations Cup event in Great Britain, and the climax of the show is of course the British Grand Prix. With our huge shopping village, funfair and lots of different restaurants and bars to choose from, it is one Britain's best summer days out!

The All England Jumping Championships

4th - 7th September 2014


Founded in 2011, the All England Jumping Championships has already established itself as one of the major events on the British showjumping circuit. In a bid to continue our support of grass roots participation in the sport, and as part of our ongoing programme of championing British breeding, we are delighted to have added a third national show to our summer events. In its first two years the show has already attracted some of the leading names in showjumping, including reigning Olympic Team Gold Medallist Ben Maher, just a month after his triumph at Greenwich! Admission is free, so it is the place to see the equine stars of the future, and the place to rub shoulders with the human stars of the sport while you're doing it.
