The British Elite Horse Show was set up approximately 16 years ago, by a committee of dedicated show people who realised the need to have a show for family produced ponies only. The British elite accepts that producers have a dedicated role within showing world, yet we feel it is beneficial to both pony and rider to compete with similar competitors on a even basis to gain confidence and experience needed therefore enabling progression within the sport.
The show has been North West based for several years but has moved to a more central venue at Arena UK Lincolnshire due to policy changes at Myerscough college.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody that has made this show a success and has supported us throughout our move. We hope that our northern-based supporters will still attend this show, as we intend to make this year an even greater success. The fantastic facilities provided by Arena UK should enable the Elite to grow and improve ensuring future success, and our new central location allows us to reach out to new competitors of whom we hope will come at support us and enjoy our very special show that is The British Elite Horse Show.
We are very privileged to offer a wide range of classes, ensuring there really is something for everyone. Classes include show pony and show hunter classes, mountain and moorland ridden and working hunter, pure and part bred Arabs, and best rider.A bonus feature being the working hunter classes are carried out in the main indoor arena providing an excellent practice for Horse Of The Year. We are also fortunate to have been allocated a 2015 Royal International Pretty Polly qualifier. The first qualifier for the 2015 season!
** Did you know**
The British Elite Horse show, founded the Home Produced Pretty Polly Classes at the Royal International Horse Show? And we are delighted as from 2015, to once again be sponsoring these classes at the Royal international! It is the mission of the British Elite to emphasize the importance of Home produced / amateur classes from grass roots to county level showing. This is what we strive for!
Another great feature of the Elite is that the top ten ponies in the majority of classes go through to the evening performance complete with ring guard and musical lap of honor. All of which will be presented with beautiful rosettes/sashes. It is sure to be an excellent night with a great atmosphere, which we hope you will enjoy.
May I also emphasise the fact that none of the committee gain financially by being involved in the show. All the money made is recycled back into the Elite therefore allowing us to provide an excellent show with a great family atmosphere year after year. My I thank you personally for your support as it really does enable the Elite to build on our successes.
