The All England Jumping Championships

3rd - 6th September 2015


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.
