The Horse of the Year Show at Wembley Arena from 27 September to 1 October remains one of the most popular show jumping events, and for many riders is the highlight of the season after qualifying at the regional competitions throughout the summer.

The show continues its blend of show jumping, with favourites such as the Puissance on the Saturday and the Grand Prix on the Sunday, and horse- based entertainment. The show is held over three halls, and new this year is the viewing restaurant, which has been constructed over the entrance to the main arena.
