Worth going?

Anyone been to the British Open show jumping show in Birmingham? Was thinking of going but it's a long way for me and it's expensive to get in, so it'll be an expensive trip. I've been to a few shows last year and loved them, expecially the Your Horse show, and the outdoor events, but they are very different to this one according to their website.

Would you recommend it? can't decide.

cheers

Yea its in the NEC, although i heard its now been renamed the LG arena.

Ive been to Olympia '08 and it was brilliant. I am going to the British Open on friday, and cuz i live in South East England I will have to get the train up really early in the morning. Im not looking forward to the early morning :P, but i am sooooo looking forward to the show. I think it will be worth it. :)

Did you go in the end? I went - the shopping pavillion wasnt as big as olympia and didnt have as much stuff, so didnt get everything i wanted, but the performances were amazing. We saw several classes of showjumping, the french man with his horses (i forgot his name lol - but he was excellant), dressage to music and the puissance, which was really good as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day, although i was knackered by the time we finally got home - at 1:45 saturday morning(!)

You must go!  Like Boyzie92 I went on friday and it was amazing -  what a puissance!  And Jean P...P...no i cant spell it...the french guy was amazing to - total magic! ...and I went home inspired to canter around some barrels in the arena lol:)!  But yes unfortunately the shopping wasnt quite what i expeceted...and i couldnt talk much the next day through smiling and shouting lol :) We drove for three hours each way and id do it again.   You must go next year! x
