Eight contestants. Eight horses. Over £1,000 worth of equestrian kit. Four days of intensive training. One life-changing prize. Welcome to Horse & Country TV’s Blue Chip All Star Academy.

In 2016, Horse & Country TV launched an innovative new television show. Billed as a mixture between The Apprentice and Pony Club Camp, Blue Chip All Star Academy saw eight riders battle it out across a number of challenges in order to be crowned series champion. Now it’s back, even bigger and better, for 2017 – and this is your chance to be on the show.

Last year’s winner Rhianydd Lee-Jones has had a phenomenal year since winning the first series, along with her ex-racehorse Bob. She’s gone on to present for Horse & Country TV at some of the biggest equestrian events in the country, and interviewed riders such as William Whitaker, Ben Maher and Gemma Tattersall.


Eight riders will be selected to attend a training camp and appear in the documentary series. If you’re chosen to be on the show, you’ll receive an amazing prize bundle of equestrian kit worth over £1,000. You and your horse will then be put through your paces over four days of intensive training with some of the leading names in equestrian sport, as our eight contestants are whittled down to one overall winner.

When & Where

Series two of Blue Chip All Star Academy will be filmed from 29 March to 1 April 2017 at the fantastic Talland School of Equitation in Gloucestershire. The series will then premiere on Horse & Country TV (Sky 253 and H&C Play) at 9pm on 28th May 2017.


The show will once again be produced and directed by television presenter Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes (Newsround, BBC News) alongside her team from Harkaway Productions. Jenny Rudall will be presenting the show.


Pammy Hutton will be the head judge. She will be joined by her son Charlie Hutton and other guests/celebrity judges.


The winner will receive a year’s sponsorship and products from Blue Chip Feed, plus the chance to co-present an episode of Rudall’s Round Up with Jenny on Horse & Country TV. The winner and seven finalists will be invited to join H&C’s All Star vlogging team and will appear on the channel regularly on The All Star Diaries programme.
