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.
