Royal International Horse Show with spotlight on hacks

TODAY, Saturday, is the penultimate day of the Prenetics Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead and it is time for the hacks to take their place in the spotlight.

The Brereton Supreme Hack Championship is always one of the most popular showing classes, with those elegant equines floating round the International Arena.

Today saw the first of Hickstead’s special two-star showjumping classes at this year’s Prenetics Royal International Horse Show – with a first-ever Hickstead main ring international win for Jay Halim. Congratulations to Jay, and to Anthony Condon and Joe Clayton who won the other two International Arena classes today.

Another rider who deserves a mention is Nicole Lockhead Anderson, who wasn’t content with winning yesterday’s Al Shira’aa RIHS Six Year Old Championship – today she won a major showing title as well!

And finally, if you fancy coming down to Hickstead this weekend, we’d love to see you so please do come down, watch some fantastic showjumping and showing classes, and make sure to browse our boutique selection of tradestands. Adult admission costs just £15 this year, with concessions costing £10 and under-16s going free, and tickets can be bought online or at the gate.
