Monday 04 October 2010
The world’s most famous horse show, Horse of the Year Show (HOYS), is just days away, the stables are being built and the arenas are being laid, the NEC is being transformed into a horse lover’s paradise. HOYS takes place from Wednesday 6th – Sunday 10th October at Birmingham’s NEC and will host the finals of the UK’s most highly regarded showing and show jumping championships. There is a whole feast of equestrian entertainment and those planning to attend are being advised to book at their earliest convenience as tickets are becoming increasingly limited.
The ever popular Horse of the Year Show continues to grow in size and this year’s show is no exception. Show highlights include world-class international show jumping, the most prestigious showing championships, the first ever UK display by Frédéric Pignon, brother of HOYS favourite Jean François. Plus an exciting line-up of equestrian entertainment including the Osborne Refrigerators scurry racing, the ever popular NFU Countryside Pony Club Mounted Games and displays with the very dashing Knights of Middle England.
With two arenas, 1,500 horses, 1,400 competitors and a huge variety of shopping at over 250 stands, 1.2 million square feet of The NEC is transformed into a horse lover’s paradise.
