British Showjumping have teamed up with the team at Hickstead to offer a pair of tickets to the Longines Royal International Horse Show on Friday 28th July. The highlight of Friday 28 July is the FEI Nations Cup™ of Great Britain, presented by Longines, a competition that provides the only chance for the British public to watch their team compete on home turf. In the showing classes, you can look forward to watching the Supreme Riding Horse Championship and the The Nettex Supreme Working Hunter Championship.
This five-star international show (the official horse show of The British Horse Society) features showjumping, showing, carriage driving, scurry driving and arena eventing. It is the oldest horse show in Britain, having been first held back in 1907, and it has been hosted at Hickstead in West Sussex every year since 1992.
Showjumping highlights at this show include the FEI Nations Cup™ of Great Britain, presented by Longines, which takes place on the Friday afternoon, followed by the Queen Elizabeth II Cup on Saturday. While Sunday concludes with the €200,000 Longines King George V Gold Cup.
The international action gets underway on Thursday with the MS Amlin Eventers’ Challenge, where the world’s best event riders gallop round the International Arena at speed over cross-country fences.
When it comes to showing, the Longines Royal International Horse Show is the most prestigious outdoor event of the season, with horses and ponies being campaigned all over the country in the run up to the event in the hope of securing a qualifying ticket. At the show, Britain’s best horses and ponies compete in their respective classes, hoping to claim a coveted place in the British Horse Society Supreme Horse and the De La Hey Family Supreme Pony Championships on Sunday afternoon.
There are eight rings of equestrian action in total, including hundreds of national showjumping and showing classes. There’s also the huge Charles Owen Shopping Village, plus a wide range of bars and eateries. Ladies’ Day is held on the Saturday, where the best-dressed visitors have the chance to win some fabulous prizes.
