International Horse Show

Equusbook is proud to present Olympia, The London International Horse Show on 17th – 23rd December 2018. As well as celebrating Christmas 2018, Olympia also celebrates the fact that it is the only UK equestrian show to host all three of the FEI World Cup Qualifiers in Show Jumping, Dressage and Driving.

International horse show History

Olympia was originally launched in June 1907 where the first horse show was held in West London and even attracted members of Royalty to the event. This iconic equestrian showpiece was initially called the International Horse Show. However, due to the second world war starting during 1939, the last show was performed in Olympia before it was rejuvenated in 1947 with a new venue at White City. But due to the historic relationship with previous shows, the prestigious London International Horse Show returned to Olympia. With annual shows performed at the venue from 1972 onwards. Ever since it has been named the Olympia International Horse Show this marque event has become recognised globally to be one of the biggest annual equestrian shows of all time.
