Arena Eventing is joining the line-up for the first time at this year’s Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The exciting development ensures that potential team members in all three Olympic disciplines will be competing at the show ahead of Tokyo 2020.
The new competition, which will take place on Wednesday 13th May, will see international riders compete over show jumping and cross country obstacles, with the course designed by Captain Mark Phillips.
The introduction of Arena Eventing will bring a whole new dimension to the show, which already hosts four FEI disciplines; Dressage, Jumping, Driving and Endurance. With Tokyo 2020 on the horizon, it will be one of the last chances to see Team GBR’s hopefuls in all three disciplines together on home turf.
This year’s competition will include British riders Zara Tindall, Pippa Funnell Tom McEwan and Gemma Tattersall. Lauren Kieffer is set to fly the flag for the USA.
Show Director Simon Brooks-Ward added: “I am delighted to announce that Arena Eventing will be taking place at this year’s Royal Windsor Horse Show. To host all three disciplines ahead of this year’s Olympic Games is hugely exciting and a fantastic new development for the show.”
