THE world's finest equestrian Christmas party is coming to London's Olympia.

The London International Horse Show runs from December 15-21 and the Recorder is giving away three pairs of tickets for the show on Thursday, December 17.

The FEI World Cup(tm) Dressage features on the opening evenings in the form of a grand prix, and freestyle to music.

European champions and world record holders Edward Gal and Moorlands Totillas will compete in the FEI World Cup(tm) dressage qualifier grand prix on Tuesday and, upon qualification, will go through to the freestyle to music on Wednesday.

Gal will also hold a dressage masterclass (not with Totillas), before the freestyle.

Gals says: "I'm really looking forward to Olympia and I can't wait to be back competing in the UK."
