Star-studded line-up

British Olympic dressage star Carl Hester, world number one three-day event rider William Fox-Pitt and top international Showjumper Tim Stockdale will top the bill at the Your Horse British Equine Event 2003.

The Your Horse British Equine Event 2003 takes place on 1-2 November at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. Our three star riders will each perform two demos daily. In addition, visitors can enjoy many new and improved features at this year's event, including the Horseanswers Theatre, a new-look Breeds Village and fantastic shopping in the massive retail area of over 300 trade stands.

Back by popular demand having performed in front of packed audiences at the 2001 British Equine Event, Carl Hester continues to be one of Britain's most successful dressage riders with over 30 national titles under his belt and two Olympic Games. He has recently been named as one of British Dressage's World Class Performance Plan dressage squad - one of only eight elite riders in the country.

William Fox-Pitt topped the FEI World Rankings in 2002 after a highly successful year that included winning Burghley Horse Trials on Highland Lad. His dazzling form continues this year. Last month William clinched first and second places on Wallow and Ballincoola respectively at Bramham International Horse Trials in Yorkshire. This followed hot on the heels of his success at Chatsworth International Horse Trials in May, where he won Britain's only FEI World Cup Qualifier. Riding the 17-year-old Stunning, William pipped Badminton and Kentucky winner Pippa Funnel and Walk On Star to second place to scoop the CIC***.

William' international successes include a team bronze from the 2002 World Equestrian Games at Jerez, Spain, and three team golds and an individual silver from European eventing championships.

Tim Stockdale is a member of Britain's World Class Performance Squad 2003 and has represented Britain in no less than 30 Nations Cup competitions. He achieved fame when he appeared in Channel 4's Faking It - training a dancer to show jump in one month!
