Want to compete at one of the most historic and prestigious horse shows in the world? Now is your chance! 


Entries have officially opened for our five-star July event, the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Great Britain at the BHS Royal International Horse Show (24-29 July).

There is a wide variety of classes for amateur riders and novice horses, with showjumping classes now starting at British Novice level (90cm), going up to 1.60m international World Ranking classes. The show also includes a number of British Showjumping’s Winter Finals, including the SEIB Winter Novice Final, the Champagne Cave Winter Grades B & C Championship and a range of pony finals.

Most of the showing classes at the BHS Royal International Horse Show are championship finals, so horses and ponies have already been campaigning all season to qualify for the event. The show gets underway on the Tuesday with a full day of Skewbald and Piebald classes, while other championships taking place during the week include Show Hunter Ponies, Miniature Horses, Lead Rein, Hunters, Mountain and Moorlands, Working Hunters, Working Hunter Ponies, Working Show Horses, Riding Horses, Hacks, Intermediates, Riding Ponies and Cobs, with plenty of options for Amateurs and home-produced ponies. Driving classes include Hackneys, Trade Driving classes and the Osborne Refrigerators Scurry.

Competitor entries for the show close on Friday 1 June.  

Visitor tickets are on sale now, with discounts applying in advance. This year, the show will conclude with the the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ of Great Britain on the Sunday afternoon, while the Longines BHS King George V Gold Cup moves to Friday afternoon. Thursday’s main highlight is the MS Amlin Eventers’ Challenge, while the BHS Queen Elizabeth II Cup retains its usual slot of Saturday afternoon.

New for 2018 is the Family Zone, featuring a funfair and entertainment from popular West Sussex company Tomfoolery.
