Christmas is over, y’all, and it’s time to move on from our gluttonous sweets binging and avoiding political chats with Uncle Merv, and get ready for the winter horse show circuits! We’ve got loads of behind-the-scenes master plans in the works to give you an insiders view of many of the sunny southern barns around the country. But in the meantime, we’ve got a few more indoor shows on the docket to tide you over.
Mechelen Jumper Show
In addition to being the big CSI5* on the docket this weekend, Mechelen, Belgium is also home to a pony jumper championship and Zangersheide-only jumper classes for young and established stallions to strut their stuff. The riders got right to work, and USA’s Lauren Hough has already claimed a five-star class aboard Waterford in the Land Rover Masters Tuesday evening. And there is still three more nights of excitement to come!
Liverpool International Horse Show
Following up on the heels of Olympia, the UK is bringing in another world class lineup for show jumping fans, and all your favorite Brits and Irishmen will be on hand to duke it out, including Scott Brash, Laura Renwick, the Whitaker fellers, Greg Broderick and many more.
We’re still just a couple weeks out from the start of WEF and Coachella, but HITS Ocala is well underway and the ESP Holiday Series in Wellington will be wrapping up this weekend.
Keep it locked on JN for all the show news and results, and Go Jumping!
