It’s our favourite festive show next week when Olympia, the London International Horse Show gets underway (13-19 December).

We always have mixed feelings when we reach the final day of the show – sad because it’s over, but also excited because it means Christmas is almost upon us (and, after almost a week of twice daily renditions of The First Noel, by that point we’re definitely in the festive spirit).

We’ve also got some brilliant Olympia highlights to look forward to in that week running up to Christmas, with the FEI World Cup Driving (Tuesday 20th December at 8.30pm), FEI World Cup Dressage (Tuesday 20th December at 9pm) and FEI World Cup Jumping (Wednesday 21st December at 9pm).

Then, after you’ve opened your presents and eaten all the turkey leftovers, it’s not long to wait until the New Year and some more Olympia coverage, including the fabulous Puissance (Saturday 7th January at 8pm) and the Olympia Grand Prix (Saturday 7th January at 9pm).

Don’t forget, you can either watch the action on Sky channel 253, or sign up to H&C Play to watch the shows. If you miss the premiere date, you can then view all our Olympia coverage on 10-day catch up.
