Royal International Horse Show
The Royal International Horse Show is the official horse show of the British Horse Society and consists of both showing and showjumping events. The event is held during July each year at the All England Jumping Course at Hickstead. The event is currently title sponsored by Longines, making it the Longines Royal International Horse Show.
The show is the oldest horse show in Britain, having started in 1907.
The first Royal International Horse Show was held at London Olympia in 1907, hosted by the Institute of the Horse and Pony Club, which would later become the British Horse Society. Having also been held at Wembley Stadium and the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, the show moved to the All England Jumping Course at Hickstead in 1992.
