Horseplay of the most elegant kind arrives at Olympia as the International Horse Show canters into town.
One of the great events in the equestrian calendar, the show covers everything from driving and dressage to jumping, all at world cup level.
The headline international display is a first for the Olympia venue, having not been seen on these shores in over 40 years.
Other treats for riding enthusiasts include a highly anticipated display from The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, who are set to put their stunning bay and grey stallions through their paces twice a day. Showing off their formidable skills in equestrian ballet, the school are clad in 18th Century costume as they deftly perform choreographies taken from classical and countryside dressage set to Spanish music.
