Serving up 70 Years of Horse of the Year Show

In recognition of the Platinum Jubilee year, a Horse of the Year Show commemorative plate has been designed to celebrate what has made Horse of the Year Show the equestrian spectacle that it is today. It is a tribute to everyone who has supported the show over the years and continues to make the Show what many consider to be the ultimate equestrian event. The plate will be on sale from the HOYS merchandise stand next week.

The plate tells a unique and interesting story of Horse of the Year Show through the decades; each image has been thoughtfully selected to represent iconic moments of the Show.  With every plate you will find enclosed detailing about the individual images and the story behind why this moment has been chosen to feature on the 70th Anniversary commemorative plate.

From the iconic image of John Whitaker’s famous steed Milton, to last years’ Supreme Pony Thistledown Van-Der-Vaart, each moment captured in a photograph from Horse of the Year Show has been delicately hand-painted onto the plate for the production of only 500 items.  Featuring a hand-painted item number on every plate, you will have your own individual piece of HOYS to celebrate an iconic milestone for the show.

Over the years the show has influenced the careers of many riders and breeders, and has been enormously important in the promotion of equestrianism, stimulating international success and providing a huge melting pot for competitors from all walks of life. Horse of the Year Show has and continues to touch the lives of so many people over the years, their stories and memories will truly live on forever.

Horse of the Year Show takes place at Birmingham’s NEC Genting Arena from 3rd – 7th October.
