Gala Dressage evening

For the first time in its 32-year history, Olympia International Show Jumping Championships has added an extra night to the show, on Wednesday 17th December. The organisers have created an evening dedicated to Dressage to celebrate the sport’s medal-winning year and the enormous popularity that dressage now enjoys.
Top of the bill will be the KUR (dressage to music) competition. Olympia has invited six top international riders, including our European Bronze medal winning team, to take part in this highly skilled and breathtakingly spectacular event.

Raising money to send the British team to the Olympics, the Olympia Gala Dressage Evening will be theatrical, fun, entertaining and with a touch of celebrity as Noel Edmonds will be compering the evening in his own inimitable style.

To capture the imagination of every member of the family, the organisers have also thrown in some light-hearted entertainment: a Dressage and Eventers Ride and Drive competition, a Masterclass with Richard Davison instructing John Whitaker and Zara Phillips on the finer points of dressage, a Parade of Champions and Olympia favourites such as the Shetland Pony Grand National and the Christmas Finale.

It’s an evening you’ll never forget! Ticket prices range from £9.00 to £22.00. For further details and bookings telephone the Box Office on 0870 733 0733 (00 44 115 912 9220 for international visitors) or visit the web site at For Private Boxes please call Jane Charley on 01753 847900.
