As one of the biggest outdoor shows in the UK, the Longines Royal International Horse Show uniquely sees the elite of many equestrian disciplines compete side by side: it has everything from the thrills and spills of international showjumping to the elegance and glamour of champion showing horses and ponies, to the exhilarating buzz of the country’s best scurry ponies to event riders galloping across-country.

The Queen Elizabeth II Cup is one of the most coveted titles in the national showjumping circuit, while the finale is the Longines King George V Gold Cup, one of the oldest and most prestigious classes in the world.
