What is the HOYS?
The Horse of the Year Show – also known as HOYS (pronounced /hois/)- was founded to culminate the British equestrian events year. The Show was the idea of Captain Tony Collings and was realized by the then Chairman of BSJA (now British Showjumping), Mike Ansell. As Season Finale ended, the show needed to be held indoors, making it a unique event.

Horse of the Year Show welcomes 1,600 horses, ponies, and 1,500 competitors and is a true spectacle for all things horsey.
Showjumping fans can look forward to the popular puissance, top international and national championship classes, and the prestigious leading showjumper of the year. British riders will showcase their up-and-coming Grand Prix horses for dressage divas in the future elite championship. And the showing world will compete for prestigious national titles across the full range of horse types and breeds.
There’s also lots of shopping and some great displays to marvel at, as well as the crowd-pleasing scurry driving and the Pony Club mounted games at HOYS for the Prince Philip Cup.
Lancashire rider Robert Murphy completed a notable double at the Horse of the Year Show when he won the Redpost Equestrian Senior Foxhunter Championship.
Just 24 hours after Robert took the Talent Seekers class aboard Lightning TW, he returned with another horse owned by London 2012 Team GBR gold medallist Peter Charles – eight-year-old Chawton – to claim another major career victory.
Robert’s success came 28 years after his father Peter won the same class, while they also completed a family double at last year’s HOYS, on that occasion in the Senior Newcomers.
Six combinations from 24 starters made it through to the jump-off with Robert. He was first to go in a race against the clock, prevailing by more than two seconds from Damian Charles and Desert Encounter OL, with Alex Thompson finishing third aboard In A Hurry.
For Preston-based Robert, his latest HOYS success underlined the strength of equine talent he currently has, and it was also a reward for long-term planning. “I’ve had this class in my sights for a long time. It is my third go at it, and I am really happy to win,” he said.
“He is always a careful horse and tries to jump the jumps for me, so I knew if he went in there and enjoyed the atmosphere, we would have a good chance.
“He is naturally quite quick, quite nippy, and I knew I needed to jump clear. The jumps are very delicate, and it was quite tricky, so keeping it safe was the main thing.
“My dad had a very good career, and following in his footsteps has always spurred me.
“The horse is very consistent; he is always jumping clear rounds. My string is as good as ever, and I had this show as a set target for most of my horses.”
