Horse of the Year Show 2015 Showing Qualifiers Announced

With the New Year just a matter of weeks away, the countdown to the 2015 season has already begun. Get your 2015 calendars at the ready, the list of Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) 2015 showing qualifiers has now been published at

Competitors up and down the country will contest the qualifiers, held between March and September, in a bid to secure their place at “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”. This year’s Show will take place from 7th – 11th October 2015 at Birmingham’s NEC.

Horse of the Year Show has some exciting new developments involving two Championships this season, allowing a greater number of competitors to aim for glory at “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”. The Ladies’ Hunter of the Year Championship will become the Ladies’ Side Saddle Horse of the Year Championship. From 2015, this final will be open to hacks, cobs and riding horses, as well as hunters, ridden side saddle by a lady. The hugely popular Ridden Partbred Pony of the Year Championship will now be open to ponies whose breeding is in part Dartmoor, New Forest or Connemara, as well as ponies whose breeding is, in part, Welsh or Arab.

Once again, all results from HOYS qualifiers will be entered into the league tables for the HOYS Awards Series. These prestigious Awards recognise and honour those who perform consistently well throughout the qualifying season. An announcement regarding the awards will be released in due course.

All Search for a Star and Racehorse to Riding Horse qualifiers are yet to be announced.

Tickets for Horse of the Year Show 2015 will go on sale next year for what promises to be another exceptional event. For show information, visit or call 01582 711411.
