This year HOYS showcases two never seen before equestrian displays, including the breathtaking LIMITLESS performed by Atkinsons Action Horses and an insightful travel through time as we discover The Story of the Caspian Horse. On dressage Thursday visitors will be treated to a Dressage Masterclass from the triple Olympic Gold Medallist herself, Charlotte Dujardin. Charlotte will put the riders through their paces whilst sharing some invaluable training tips and competition advice. Other competition at HOYS includes the unmissable Virbac 3D Worming Pony Club Mounted Games which takes place each day in the Andrews Bowen International Arena where the teams battle it out to win the coveted Prince Philip Cup. There is also the ever-popular Osborne Refrigerators Double Harness Scurry Racing which will have you on the edge of your seat as each team attempts to tackle the course in the fastest time.
