As one of the longest standing horse shows, running consecutively for 70 years, we're absolutely buzzing that this year's Horse of the Year Show aka HOYS returns to Birmingham as the Genting Arena and the NEC site transforms into a equestrian utopia! 


We love it when HOYS trots into town, one, there's horses EVERYWHERE and two, it brings the whole equestrian community to one place - connecting like minded horse lovers and giving you guys the chance to talk with owners, competitors and merchandisers.

Everyday – the Pony Club Mounted Games and the Osborne Refrigerators Double Harness Scurry Racing are both high energy and thrilling parts of the show which prove a favourite with many visitors. This year, to celebrate the show’s 70th birthday, there will be double the amount of displays to that of previous years. Four varied displays will showcase their talent under the spotlight of the Andrews Bowen International Arena.

Wednesday hosts the Mountain & Moorland Showing Championships along with National Showjumping finals including the much sought after Bronze and Silver Leagues.

Thursday hosts the Dressage Masterclass, Showing Championships and National Showjumping finals including the prestigious Equitop Myoplast Senior Foxhunter Championship.

Friday sees the first day of the International Showjumping as well as Showing Championships which includes the accolade of Supreme In-Hand Champion.

Saturday daytime performance sees the youngest competitors take to the ring with the Mini Show Pony of the Year Championship and the Pony Foxhunter Showjumping Championship. Meanwhile the Saturday evening performance is all about the Puissance as the International Showjumpers face the big red wall which last year got up to heights of 7ft high!
