Horse of the Year Show 2021 is On Sale Now.

We are delighted to announce that Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) 2021 is on sale now.

Following the recent Government announcements, we have decided to go ahead with the planning of another fantastic HOYS, and the event will return to the NEC Birmingham from 6th-10th October 2021, with a ticketed audience.

To ensure the confident preparation of the event, in line with industry guidance, the initial on-sale ticket release will be limited in numbers for some performances.  Further tickets may be released at intervals leading closer to the event.  Therefore, don’t miss out on securing your tickets now.

In the context of the current public health situation, our aspiration remains the same, to stage the best Horse of the Year Show, with the health and safety of guests, staff, competitors, volunteers, and the community remaining our highest priority.

Horse of the Year Show Event Director, Emma Williams, commented: “As one of the most famous horse shows, staging the 72nd Horse of the Year Show is vital for the UK equestrian industry, as well as having a fundamental impact on inspiring people to ride and compete in equestrian sport. As an institution that many of us love dearly; it is part of the UK’s equestrian heritage and we cannot let it disappear; it is for this reason that we hope as many people as possible will support the event this year, and we look forward to welcoming you all to Horse of the Year Show 2021.”

The 2021 show promises to be as spectacular as ever, from showing championships, scurry driving, dazzling displays, showjumping and the hotly contested Pony Club mounted games to the shopping experience, there is something for equestrians of all ages to enjoy.
