In a tribute to the outstanding achievements of the British equestrian athletes at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, The London International Horse Show will welcome the Team GB Olympic and Paralympic Equestrian heroes in a celebratory parade, which will take place during the afternoon performance on Friday 17 December.
Leading the way will be Individual Show Jumping gold medallist, Ben Maher, who adds a Tokyo medal to his Team gold at the London Olympics in 2012. Maher will be joined by the gold medal-winning Eventing team, of Oliver Townend, Laura Collett and Tom McEwen. After a fantastic performance across all three phases, the team secured Great Britain’s first Eventing Team title for 49 years. 30-year-old McEwen then went on to claim the Individual silver medal with a foot-perfect performance aboard Toledo De Kerser.
Despite an inexperienced team of horses heading to Tokyo for the Dressage, the British team, comprising Charlotte Dujardin, Charlotte Fry and Carl Hester, surpassed all expectations to come away with a Team bronze medal. Dujardin, riding the stunning chestnut Gio, followed-up with an Individual bronze to add to her already impressive medal tally, which now includes three golds, one silver and two bronzes. In doing so, Dujardin rewrote history to briefly become Britain’s all-time most decorated female Olympian – a feat she now shares with Cycling’s Laura Kenny, after Kenny’s triumphs a few days later.
Joining their Olympic counterparts will be Team GB’s Paralympic stars, who will be in action in Tokyo from Thursday 26-30 August. The team includes four defending Paralympic champions, including 11-time Paralympic champion Lee Pearson, eight-time gold medallist Sophie Christiansen, five-time gold medallist Natasha Baker and two-time gold medallist Sophie Wells.
The London International Horse Show – this year taking place at ExCeL London from 16-20 December 2021 – will provide an opportunity for the athletes to celebrate in front of a crowd, something they were unable to experience in Tokyo. For fans, it will be a chance to hail the exceptional performances put on during the Games, proving Great Britain to be at the forefront of the sport, with some of the best horses and riders in the world.
Olympia, The London International Horse Show’s 2021 edition will relocate to ExCeL London and take place from Thursday 16th to Monday 20th December 2021, organisers announced today.
The Olympia London venue in West Kensington which has been the home to the iconic horse show for the last 49 years, is currently undergoing a re-development plan. As a result of Covid-19 the building activity for the re-development programme has accelerated. The revised construction programme will restrict the use of the venue for events in December 2021. Hence the decision to move the Christmas horse show from Olympia London to ExCeL London.
Simon Brooks-Ward, Event Director, commented; “We are very pleased that we are able to stage the event at ExCeL London. This modern venue offers us the opportunity to build on all the aspects of the Christmas horse show that our visitors, hospitality guests, sponsors, competitors and officials know and love. The scope and flexibility of ExCeL will enable us to add exciting new features and will allow a larger arena with integrated hospitality.”
“Our 90,000 strong audience can expect to see the best international competition including three FEI World Cup Qualifiers in Jumping, Dressage and Driving, alongside the usual wonderful mix of international equestrian displays, The Kennel Club Dog Agility, The Shetland Pony Grand National and, of course, the Christmas Finale.”
“ExCeL will offer our horse show customers excellent facilities, first class restaurants, fast digital connection, multiple parking spaces and a relaxing environment for Christmas present buying in the Show’s renowned Shopping Village.”
“Our partners, sponsors and exhibitors including the FEI, British Equestrian and Longines are all supportive of the move and are looking forward to seeing a new version of the Show at ExCeL.”
Simon Mills, Executive Director – Exhibitions, ExCeL London said: “We have a track record for delivering world class events, from globally recognised trade shows and consumer exhibitions, to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and BBC Sports Personality of the Year. As such we are delighted to welcome an international horse show to ExCeL. We’re really looking forward to working with the organising team to create a hugely memorable event for the equestrian community, that delivers a world-class experience with a raft of new opportunities.”
