Experience the magic, mystique and celebration of the horse

Odyssey Box Office and Ticketmaster outlets nationwide have launched the eagerly awaited tickets for The Belfast Indoor International Horse Show as a full-scale promotion drive kicks off.

The Belfast International runs from November 27th through to November 30th, and will provide hours of fun, laughter, excitement and entertainment for adults, families and children of all ages with the opportunity to experience the magic, mystique and celebration of the horse in the comfort of the Odyssey Arena.

After the whirlwind launch of Northern Ireland’s sporting and social event of the year, tickets for the Belfast Indoor International Horse Show have been launched on sale and every purchase promises a show to remember filled with explosive family fun entertainment.

Careful consideration was taken during the planning of the event in an effort to reach an increasingly diverse audience. The promotion team have gone beyond the realms of the normal Horse Show to bring seven three-hour theatrical performances with world class international show jumping never before seen in this country and the event has been reported as an exciting new step for both Northern Ireland Sport and The Odyssey Arena.

We will have it all in the show programme, from good clean family fun to that ultimate adrenalin rush, while television personalities and a host of celebrities and sporting hero’s come together with these sensational performers to stage a competitive team challenge for charity.

Capture the excitement and nostalgia of Jean Francois Pignon's breathtaking display during every performance; experience the unique trust between man and his horse or the excitement and fabulous family fun of the Irish Shetland Grand National, they might have short hairy legs and reach a height of no more than 107cm, but racing fit Shetland ponies certainly know how to shift! They can gallop at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, taking 2ft 4" high brush fences in their stride.

Hold on to your seat for Saturday evening’s Odyssey Puissance, the famous big red wall, this is a high jump for horses, which can be raised to as much as 7ft. Sunday afternoon’s Six Bar competition will see six upright fences in one straight line across the diagonal of the arena form the course for this competition. Clear the six and you are through to the next round, take down a pole and you are out.

Or will it be the big one on the Sunday night The City International Grand Prix. The richest prize pool of the show, big fences and difficult courses and the biggest names in show jumping make this a true test of horsemanship. The Grand Prix is the closing event of the show and definitely one to watch, for high drama and serious international show jumping for a serious prize fund.

Whether you want fun filled family entertainment, on the edge of your seat adrenalin rush or some celeb spotting, Odyssey Arena and The Belfast Indoor International Horse Show is the place for you.
