Horses Galore At Equus 2003 - And That Includes A Unicorn

Visitors to this April's Equus horse show in London will shake their heads in amazement as the event will opened each day.......... by a Unicorn!

No-one knows where this beautiful creature has come from, but his appearance at Equus, which is taking place at the ExCel exhibition centre in London's Docklands from 3-6 April, will start off a fantastic programme of daily demonstrations and shows in the event's star-studded main arena.

Amongst the celebrities taking part this year are Olympic Gold Medal winner Anky van Grunsven, Badminton Horse Trials winner Pippa Funnell and Olympic showjumper Geoff Billington with his popular partner "It's Otto". These will be joined by top "horse whisperer" Kelly Marks, side saddle specialist Claire Lewis, international showjumper Di Lampard plus demonstrations of Western Riding and Polo - which will include "have a go" sessions for the public. Each day's programme will close with a favourite pastime of ancient Rome - chariot racing.

Outside of the main arena there will be plenty of other exciting things for visitors to see and do. Over 150 companies will be showing the very latest equestrian products, clothing, stabling, transportation, holidays and training courses. And, as well as a Warm Up Arena, where visitors can see many of the stars getting ready for their performances, there is a Healthy Horse Stable Yard where talks and presentations on subjects such as veterinary care, equine behaviour, tack fitting and much more will be given by experts.
