The Liverpool International Horse Show will be running for its fourth year at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on December 28th-31st.  With the buzz of Christmas still fresh in the air and excitement of the New Year looming – the atmosphere is hard to beat and is the perfect way to end the year!

Check out why we think you'll love it as much as we do...

Show Jumping and Sporting Stars

Hosting some of the world’s finest riders including Olympians and global sporting stars, the world-class competitions are fierce and are definitely not one to miss. With adrenaline filled international show jumping, the battle to become the Liverpool International Grand Prix Champion will have you on the edge of your seat - top prizes including £65,400 and the prestigious Liver Bird Show Jumping trophy.

Dressage to Music

The dressage to music will show some of the world’s elite horses doing their best moves. With last year’s contests including Olympic gold medallists Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester – the stakes are high. If you’re a horse lover or first-time attendee, you’ll be guaranteed to be left in awe.

Pintsize Ponies

Other events include the Shetland pony Grand National. The pintsize ponies and jockeys are eagerly anticipated each year - and it remains a firm favourite with the kids.

Flying Motorbikes

The show mixes things up with the Arena Cross freestyle MX crew. This performance includes trained motorbike riders flying off purpose built ramps, with their bikes 40 feet in the air!

Shopping and Champagne

All tickets give access to Shopping Village with a huge selection of equestrian and lifestyle retail outlets, as well as the restaurants - a favourite being the Champagne bar located next to the warm-up rings.

Fireworks and Feature Acts

The Echo Arena will be the perfect place to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the whole family. The celebrations start with fun competitions with the riders, such as the Battle of the Sexes Knockout where riders race against each other round a mirror image course. There will also be NYE specials from feature acts, live music and a stunning indoor firework display as the clock strikes midnight with a few surprises promised further into the show!

An Amazing Atmosphere

With an electric atmosphere, elite horses and everything in-between, the show really is a must see. 

Tickets range from bronze to platinum – including VIP hospitality packages. Tickets can be purchased here.
