With just two weeks to go, preparations are underway for the official horse show of The British Horse Society, the Longines Royal International Horse Show – held on 25-30 July.

As always, we will be there throughout the five days, with plenty going on at the stand. Visitors can follow the pathway outside of the marquee to see our new Equine Excellence Pathway – and find their journey to becoming a Fellow.

Don’t miss the opportunity to win a lesson of a lifetime. Win a lesson with BHS Fellow Yogi Bresiner or enjoy a riding lesson at a BHS Approved Centre. Come and visit us on stand 63, complete an entry form (by answering three simple questions) and place your entry into the prize draw box.

Throughout the week, there will be a number of hobby horses all tacked up and ready to go, so you can try the new Ride Safe Award. Riders will need to navigate the obstacle course on their hobby horse – showing that they’re in control at all times. It’s a great activity for all the family, giving visitors a taster of the new Ride Safe Award.

Henry the mechanical horse will also be making an appearance on the stand – come along and help us ride 2026 miles, all in aid of equestrian access. Our fantastic Accredited Professional Coaches will be on hand to assist you in your ride – and you’ll be able to speak to them about their journey in becoming a coach.

BHS members are entitled to free entry on any one day of the Royal International. Please look out for full information, including the coupon that appeared in the June issue of British Horse – additional discounted tickets may be purchased online prior to the event.
