Horse & Country’s new Omega Equine All Star Academy series is now on – and it’s bigger and better than ever!

Tough challenges

This year is even tougher, with challenges including turnout, anatomy, intelligent horsemanship and rider fitness.

As always, we have a great list of guest judges, with names including eventer Harry Meade, super groom Alan Davies and showjumper Geoff Billington. You’ll have to watch the Omega Equine All Star Academy to find out how the new recruits get on.

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 have been given over £1,000 worth of equestrian products.

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

2018 All Star winner

Make you sure don’t miss this exciting new series to find out if Pammy is still scary (but also very nice), what Charlie’s hair looks like, who cries and who falls off. Most importantly you need to watch to find out will be crowned the 2018 All Star winner.
