The moment you’ve all been waiting for is here – Horse & Country’s Omega Equine All Star Academy is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever!

Guest judges

This year’s line-up of guest judges is even more exciting, but you’ll have to watch the Omega Equine All Star Academy when it airs in November to find out. Not even the contestants know who the instructors are, until they turn up to teach.

Previous years saw the recruits receive lessons from the likes of Olympic gold medallist and all round superstar Carl Hester, Olympic event rider Ludwig Svennerstal and top showjumper Geoff Billington.

The first episode premieres on Sunday 25 November at 9pm – so make sure you don’t miss a minute.

Great sponsors

The 2018 All Star Academy has a new sponsor in the guise of Omega Equine – your go-to brand for innovative supplements for your horse. In addition, we have a whole host of great sponsors, who you can find out about here.

The winner will receive one year’s sponsorship from Omega Equine and the chance to co-present an episode of Rudall’s Round-Up alongside Jenny. Plus, all eight finalists will be given over £1,000 worth of equestrian products.

You can meet the 2018 finalists here.

Chance of a lifetime

If you haven’t seen the All Star Academy before (and if not, where have you been?!), the show is a cross between The Apprentice and Pony Club camp. The finalists face a series of tough tasks in each episode, under the watchful eye of the judges.

The show will once again be filmed at the Talland School of Equitation, with Pammy Hutton and her son Charlie as the contestants’ mentors and judges. The finalists will also get the chance to be taught by the leading names in equestrian sport.

As the series is also about finding future vlogging stars for Horse & Country, media skills are just as important as horsemanship. All the contestants will go on to share their vlogs in the All Star Diaries.

Taking part in this show really is the chance of a lifetime.

2018 All Star winner

Make you sure don’t miss this exciting new series when it kicks off on Sunday 25 November at 9pm. Find out which special guests will be invited along to help judge each challenge, will Pammy still be scary (but also very nice), what will Charlie’s hair look like, will everyone cry and who will fall off? Most importantly who will be crowned the 2018 All Star winner?
