HOYS Updates

The list of Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) 2014 showing qualifiers has now been published at http://hoys.co.uk/competitor-zone/showing-qualifiers/

Competitors up and down the country will contest the qualifiers, held between March and September, in a bid to secure their place at “The World’s Most Famous Horse Show”. This year’s Show will take place from 8th – 12th October 2014 at Birmingham’s NEC.

It’s an exciting year ahead for showing competitors, some of whom will have the chance to qualify for an entirely new Championship at HOYS 2014. The Ridden Partbred Pony of the Year Championship aims to recognise and promote quality ridden ponies, whose breeding, in part, is Arab or Welsh, or a combination of the two.

Once again, all results from HOYS qualifiers will be entered into the league tables for the HOYS Awards Series. These prestigious Awards recognise and honour those who perform consistently well throughout the qualifying season.

Search for a Star, Racehorse to Riding Horse and all show jumping qualifiers are yet to be announced.

In a separate update The Harness Champion of the Year final at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) is to be renamed the Harness Horse and Pony of the Year Championship with immediate effect.

The change has been made in order to bring the class into line with the naming of all other showing Championships at HOYS. The format of the Championship and its qualifiers will remain unchanged.
