Royal Festival of the Horse
As one of the biggest outdoor shows in the country, the Longines Royal International Horse Show uniquely sees the elite of many equestrian disciplines compete side by side: it has everything from the thrills and spills of international showjumping to the elegance and glamour of champion showing horses and ponies, to the exhilarating buzz of the country's best eventers flying across country.
For showing riders, this is exclusively a championship show, and is the culmination of many months of qualifications throughout the winter, with a host of prestigious classes for every breed of British horse and pony. The show also stages the peak of winter national showjumping qualifiers as the home to the British Showjumping Winter Finals. As one of only eight global hosts to the FEI Nations Cup™ Series, the show is also the British public's only chance to see their national showjumping team compete on home ground.
