  1. Today at the Olympia Horse Show – Olympia Grand Prix

    The Olympia Horse Show is one of Britain’s most famous equestrian competitions. First held in 1907, the show features a range of events across the equestrian disciplines from showjumping and dressage to the Shetland Pony Grand National.

    On the final evening of the show, the BBC have live coverage of the Olympia Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious events of the week. Competitors will hurdle a series of 1.60m jumps, with any riders jumping clear progressing to a jump-off – against the clock – to determine the winner.

    Last year, just five riders made it through the first round on what is traditionally a challenging course. Alberto Zorzi – the first Italian to win the Grand Prix - is the defending champion, having become just the fifth rider to win consecutive titles in 2018.

  3. How to get into equestrian sports

    Get Inspired


    The most enjoyable aspect to horse riding is the bond you create with a horse or pony whilst being outside in the fresh air, once you have mastered the basics there are a number of equestrian disciplines and equine sports you could specialise in as your confidence, skill and knowledge grows.

    Sitting on a horse may not seem like an obvious form of exercise but it pretty much involves all the muscles in your body, between ensuring posture and balance, and controlling the horse.

    You don't need to own your own horse or pony to start riding, however you do need specialist instruction to find the right horse for you.

    Hoofride is a great place to find out about local riding schools and information for total beginners whatever your age.
