Horse lovers rejoice! One of the UK’s best loved equestrian events returns next weekend after an absence of more than 10 years, and doing so in style at the UK’s biggest arena. See all the action with tickets to the Royal Horse Gala at the O2!
You might have been to other riding shows, but the Royal Horse Gala promises to be much, much more. For a start, it’s not just about the riding – everything from circus acts to horse ballets make this a very different experience to Ascot! It’s also proof, if you needed it, that the O2 makes a great venue for more than just music events.
The Gala last took place in 1996 at Wembley and the Birmingham NEC, and the event’s promoter Sarah Galbraith promised regular attendees that this year’s show will be “even more spectacular, more exciting and more entertaining.”
To get an idea of the type of things you can look forward to, check out this video of the 1996 event, courtesy of www.starsandhorses.com:
If you’re eager to catch the best horse event of the year, you’ve still got a chance to book your tickets with Superbreak for Sunday 12 September before they sell out. You’ll also have your choice of a nearby London hotel during your stay.
The show starts at 2pm, and will feature beautiful horses from five of the world’s top classical riding schools. Some of these schools were founded as far back as 1580 and are keeping old traditions alive, while other trainers use ultra-modern techniques – like French horse whisperer Jean-Marc Imbert, who trains horses using just his voice! Sounds like a fantastic event for all the family
