About the show
Historic London Riding Horse Show celebrates riding in the capital
Almost 80 years on from the very first London Riding Horse Parade the unique equine event offers riders from all over the city an opportunity to compete in the heart of the capital
More than 40 competitors and horses from stables across London including Operation Centaur, Wormwood Scrubs and Ebony Horse Club will compete in turn out, showing, and dressage classes for the chance to win a host of horsey prizes.
The Civil Service Riding Club (CSRC) have revived the show after appeals to the equine community for help earlier this year were answered by the likes of Jodie Mailie, Janet and Philip Barnard-Brown, and Ian Smart. In addition a number of members of both the CSRC and other London based riding clubs have volunteered to run the day, and together they have ensured that a unique part of London’s equine history continues.
CSRC Chair, Nancy Lyndhurst said: “Our club’s main focus is organising great opportunities for members to prove riding in the city doesn’t have to be pricey, and everyone can take part.
“Riding in London should be accessible to everyone so to mark the CSRC’s 80th year we decided to celebrate that, and all the wonderful stables who make it possible.”
