Held in the Olympia exhibition centre, London, Olympia celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2007 as ‘one of Europe’s oldest Equine Competitions’. In 2010 it was held as CSI 5*-W (Show Jumping World Cup event) and CDI-W (Dressage World Cup event).
The world’s best equestrian Christmas party returns to Olympia London.
Olympia, The London International Horse Show combines world class equestrian competition with thrilling displays and just a sprinkling of Christmas magic to make the perfect festive day out!
The best riders and drivers from across the globe will be coming to London to compete in FEI World CupsTM in Dressage, Show Jumping and Driving. Audiences can also enjoy the thrilling Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National, Kennel Club Dog Agility and even a visit from Father Christmas himself in the Olympia Finale.
La Garde Républicaine and its famous cavalry regiment, one of the most talked about branches of the French Gendarmerie, will be bringing their stunning display to this year’s Olympia. Another international display will be announced closer to the Show.
The show also has an extensive shopping village. Hosting over 200 stands, you can find a huge variety of places to stock up on last-minute Christmas gifts from well-known brand names and not-on-the-high-street shops.
Olympia London is delighted to welcome back Olympia, The London International Horse Show, one of the biggest equestrian events in London’s calendar. Home of inspirational events since 1886, we are the top choice of over 1.5 million people each year when looking for stimulating things to do in London.
It is a little-known fact that each year Olympia, The London International Horse Show works with companies and individuals to offer disadvantaged children and adults the chance to come and have a Christmas party like no other in an Olympia box. Over the Show week, more than 20 hospitality boxes are dedicated to different charities, giving more than 350 individuals a chance that they wouldn’t normally have, to spend the day celebrating at Olympia.
Charities who have benefitted from this scheme in the past include The Carers Trust which provides support for young and adult carers, The Golden Lion Children’s Trust, which aims to provide happiness to children with special needs and disadvantaged young people, numerous Riding for the Disabled Groups as well as many more.
The Charity Box Scheme allows up to 18 guests, selected by the chosen charity, to attend the Show. Their guests can enjoy the wonderful Olympia arena atmosphere as well as a light meal and refreshments. Each guest also takes home an Olympia programme, cap and souvenir as a memento of their special day out. When possible, the Shetland Pony foal also comes to visit the Charity boxes. This fluffy visitor is particularly special for charity groups such as the Royal Society For Blind Children and Meningitis Now.
The scheme has been running for over 25 years and we are now looking for new individuals and companies to sponsor the Olympia Charity Boxes so it can continue into the future. The Charity Boxes cost £570 + VAT (£684) to sponsor and can be sponsored by an individual, group of individuals, charitable trust or company. Each sponsor can choose their own charity to benefit from the box, or select from one of the regular charities. Each sponsor receives two hospitality box badges so that they can come and enjoy Olympia for the day, as well as visit their selected charity in their box.
