There are some huge equestrian events that take place over the year and they generate a lot of interest. While many may think that people who love horses are inly into horse racing and betting on Betpoint as well other bookmakers. That is not the case, as there are other events such as showjumping, dressage and eventing that attract spectators from all over the world. So, let’s take a look at some of the equestrian events that are not to be missed.
Longines Global Champions Tour
The Longines Global Champions Tour saw a new event take place in the heart of London last year, with the tour making its return to the UK. This is always a top-class event that features some of the finest show jumpers from around the globe. World and Olympic champions regularly take part, and this has led to the likes of Scott Brash and Ben Maher involved. If you want to see the best of both British and international riders, the Royal Hospital Chelsea is certainly the place to be.
Tryon World Equestrian Games
The Tryon World Equestrian Games bring together every discipline when it comes to horse riding. Dressage, eventing, showjumping, para dressage, driving, endurance, vaulting and reigning are all on the agenda for the huge event that will take place between the 11th and the 25th of September. Like the football world cup, the World Equestrian Games only take place every four years, making it one of the most anticipated championships in the industry. This year the action will take place in North Carolina, USA, with millions expected to watch.
National Dressage Championships
Dressage is one of the most popular equestrian disciplines out there right now, so it’s only right that it has its own national championships. While it is a competitive event, it’s also in many way a celebration of everything that is great about British dressage. These championships take place annually and attracts people from all over the globe to watch. This year’s National Dressage Championships will take place between the 20th and 23rd of September at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire and there are some great titles up for grabs, such as the LeMieux National Dressage Champion.
Olympia Horse Show
The Olympia Horse Show, which takes place at Olympia in London, is an international horse show with a difference. It’s the only UK show that brings together all three FEI World Cup qualifiers in the disciplines of dressage, show jumping and riving. There is 7 days of action at Olympia, with competitions and shows available to watch. The Olympia Horse Show features events such as The FEI World Cup Dressage Grand Prix, The FEI World Cup Dressage Freestyle to Music, The Under 23s British Championship Final, The Longines FEI World Cup Jumping Leg, The Turkish Airlines Olympia Grand Prix and many more. It could well be the biggest event to take place in the UK, with spectators from all over either watching in person or watching online.
