A highlight of the horse competitions is the Showjumping Competition, which in 1898 was one of the most spectacular attractions held in the Main Arena. Watch in awe as these amazing animals jump to new heights and wow crowds with their athletic feats.
Today, the Showjumping Grand Prix in particular is a favourite with horse lovers and attracts a large crowd.
