Valegro retirement amongst the live broadcast highlights of Olympia Horse Show

30th Nov 2016

On 13-19 December, Olympia, The London International Horse Show, is back in its iconic venue and set to grip spectators from day one.

For those who are not able to attend the Show, coverage from the event will be available via the BBC, FEI TV and through streaming and video on demand, thereby ensuring you don’t have to miss a moment.

This year’s event is particularly special, with double Olympic Gold medallist, dressage rider, Charlotte Dujardin appearing with her outstanding horse, Valegro, before he retires from competition. Furthermore, double Olympic gold medal winning Show Jumping duo, Nick Skelton and Big Star, will be competing; allowing home fans to have a rare first-hand display of their magical partnership.

The competition will be of the highest international standard, with three FEI World Cup™ competitions in Driving, Dressage and Show Jumping as well as other outstanding international jumping classes including The Cayenne Puissance and The Olympia Grand Prix.

Each performance includes international displays from the Portuguese Lusitanos and Santi Serra who will demonstrate their breath-taking horsemanship as well as old favourites, the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National and the Kennel Club Dog Agility.
