Why You Should Visit Olympia, The London International Horse Show



Looking for the perfect treat this Christmas to keep you and your family entertained all day long? Coming to West London for five days only is the spectacular Olympia International Horse Show! Featuring some of the most talented and show-stopping acts from majestic horses to remarkable ponies and even a dedicated children’s show, the Olympia Horse Show has something to make everybody’s Christmases that bit more special.

Originating all the way back to 1907, the Olympia Horse Show is an event that has been celebrated by those of all ages, far and wide for decades. Since then the show has expanded to remarkable bounds, with renowned competitions displaying some of the world’s greatest talents in horse-riding; such as the FEI World Cup™ Dressage Grand Prix, FEI World Cup™ Driving Leg and the LeMieux BSPS Heritage Supreme Championships – just to name a few!

But Olympia isn’t just distinguished for its extraordinary horse-events, for pony lovers out there the Osbourne Refrigerator’s Shetland Pony Grand National is a must-see, with some of the finest animals taking part in this year’s competition. If you’re looking for even more than horses and ponies, then feast your eyes on the Kennel Club’s variety of Dog Jumping Grand Prix in which you’ll find some of the county’s most impressive furry-friends as they show off their agility skills to earn the accredited title.

However this year’s highlight act has to be the Chilean Huasos and Dancers – the Cowboys who took the Queen’s 90th Birthday celebrations by storm last year with their world-class performance. Bred for the rough and challenging terrains of the Chilean mountains, these horses are spectacular in strength and elegant in style as they work as a close team with their riders to put on an amazing performance every time. What’s more, the Chilean Huasos will be performing everyday so there’s no opportunity to miss out on this uniquely Chilean display of horsemanship and skill.

To truly embrace the Christmas spirit, every year Olympia prides itself on its fantastically festive events such as the Snowflake Stakes, the Father Christmas stakes, and the wonderful Christmas Finale supported by The Hilton Olympia – the perfect way to finish the show by coming together to sing Olympia’s traditional Christmas carol with Father Christmas himself. But if you still haven’t found that perfect present, or fancy a little something for yourself, then head over to one of 200 stands in the Shopping Village where you can find a whole variety of gifts and goods!
