The Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead is one of the most prestigious equestrian events in the world.

Its iconic international arena has welcomed the very best riders in the world – from Harvey Smith and Paul Schockemohle, to Scott Brash and Marcus Ehning.

H&C is showing highlights from three of the main classes:

  • The Longines FEI Nations Cup sees teams of four riders from all around the globe go head-to-head. This is the only chance British fans have to see their team compete on home soil.
  • The British Speed Classic guarantees high-octane excitement.
  • The Longines King George V Gold Cup is one of the oldest classes in the world, which every showjumper wants to win.

Highlights of the Longines Royal International Horse Show kicks off on 2 August at 9pm with the FEI Nations Cup 2017: Hickstead. This is followed on 5 August by the RIHS 2017: Speed Classic at 7pm and the RIHS 2017: George V Cup at 8pm. You can watch all the action on Sky 253 or online via H&C Play or Amazon Video
