9 of World's top 25 Show Jumpers are competing in London!

With only one week to go, Olympia, The London International Horse Show
(15th - 21st December) is pleased to announce the definite entries for the
Rolex FEI World CupT Jumping qualifier presented by H&M and the FEI World
CupT Dressage qualifier sponsored by Rowan Asset Management Ltd and
supported by Horse & Hound.


39 competitors from 17 different countries are taking part. Olympia has
always managed to attract the top names in Jumping and this year does not
disappoint. Nine of the World's top 25 Show Jumpers from the Rolex Rankings
are making the trip to London. They include: Albert Zoer (NED) (2); Alltech
FEI European Jumping Team Gold medallist, Pius Schwizer (SUI) (4); Olympia's
2008 winner of the Rolex FEI World CupT Jumping qualifier presented by H&M,
Edwina Alexander (AUS) (6); Alltech FEI European Jumping Individual Gold
medallist, Kevin Staut (FRA) (7); Daniel Deusser (GER) (13); Ben Maher (GBR)
(15); Steve Guerdat (SUI) (19); Jos Lansink (BEL) (23) and last year's
Renault Christmas Masters winner, Penelope Leprevost (FRA) (24).

For Great Britain, 12 of the top 15 riders from the BSJA rankings have all
entered, including a clan of the Whitakers - Michael; Robert and Ellen. A
disappointed John is unable to compete, still recovering from his broken
ankle. As Team GBR's number one and ranked 15th in the World Ben will be
hoping to repeat his success at last year's Olympia where he won the H&M
Leading Rider of the Show.


The FEI World CupT Dressage qualifier sponsored by Rowan Asset Management
Ltd and supported by Horse and Hound, kicks off with the Grand Prix on
Tuesday 15th December, with 14 competitors from seven Nations starting.

For the first time since the Alltech FEI European Dressage Championships at
Windsor, the UK will see the return of the number one FEI World ranked
partnership of Edward Gal and Moorlands Totilas (NED). World ranked number
two Adelinde Cornelissen with Parzival (NED) are also confirmed. Britain's
number one Laura Bechtolsheimer is bringing second horse Andretti H to
Olympia, giving Mistral Horjis a well earned break. The partnership still
rank as sixth in the World so Laura will be aiming for a solid performance
in London.

Carl Hester with Liebling (28); Fiona Bigwood with Wie Atlantico (55);
Richard Davison with Hiscox Artemis (70); Judith Harvey with Fitzcerraldo
(77) and Stephanie Croxford with Mr President (196) all make up the British

Definite entries are listed in full below. See you in seven days!
