The 2018 Olympia Horse Show takes place from 17-23 December in London and brings together some of the world's best dressage and show jumping riders.

BBC coverage starts on 18 December and ends on 23 December with a top-class show jumping field in the Olympia Grand Prix.

In between there will be a host of elite competitions in dressage, show jumping and carriage riding, plus traditional favourites, such as the Shetland Pony Grand National, Kennel Club Dog Agility and the Puissance jumping competition.

Viewers can watch live action on BBC Red Button, on Connected TV and via the BBC Sport website and app, and there will be a highlights programme on BBC Two on Christmas Eve.

Among the familiar faces in action will be three-time Olympic champion Charlotte Dujardin, who will return to competitive action at the Grand Hall for the first time since 2015 when she rides Hawtins Delicato in the Dressage Freestyle to Music.

Also flying the flag for Britain will be top show jumper Laura Renwick, who won last year's Puissance, London 2012 team gold medal winners Scott Brash and Ben Maher and three members of the Whittaker family - dad John, son Robert and nephew William.
