Grandstand Media Ltd. update regarding Stoneleigh Horse Show 2020

    2 Jul 2020   

It is with great regret that due to public health concerns linked to the coronavirus pandemic we, Grandstand Media Limited, have decided to cancel this year’s Stoneleigh Horse Show scheduled to take place in August at Stoneleigh Park.  The provisional date for next year’s event is Friday 13th to Sunday 15th August 2021. 

Our priority has been, and will remain to be, the health and safety of all of those involved in the show as well as our responsibility to support everyone’s efforts to tackle the coronavirus.   

This decision has been made alongside the announcement that Horse of the Year Show will no longer take place this year. The 72nd edition of HOYS will now be staged from Wednesday 6th – Sunday 10th October 2021, at the NEC Birmingham. 

We will be communicating directly with the showing judges, showing officials and tradestand holders who support the event about the specific impacts - please bear with us as we work through this. 

Emma Williams, Grandstand Media Limited event director commented: “We are extremely disappointed to have to make this decision and it is not one that has been made without considerable thought and discussion; we have done so with the utmost concern for the wellbeing of all those involved in making Stoneleigh Horse Show happen.  Considering the impact of COVID-19 on the showing qualifier season we believe that this decision is inevitably the right one for all concerned. 

"I would like to thank all those involved in Stoneleigh Horse Show, and in the wider showing community, for their understanding and patience during these undeniably challenging times.  Our thoughts are with those that have been, and continue to be, affected by this pandemic.”

As communicated by British Showjumping on Friday 26th June, there remains a commitment to deliver the National Finals and the reallocated Spring Championships at Stoneleigh Park this August.  British Showjumping will announce further information about the respective finals through their official channels in due course.
