Said Theraplate UK Liverpool International Horse Show, President, Nina Barbour:

We are thrilled that Carl and Valegro’s joint owners Roly Luard and Anne Barrot have agreed to bring him along, he is legend and superstar and it is a rare chance for fans to get to see him in the flesh.

“Since his retirement from competing around the world, Carl and the team have kept him fit and well and it will be great to see him on the night.”

The opening evening of the Theraplate UK Liverpool International Horse Show is set for a celebration of equestrian and family entertainment.

Spectators will also witness a serious line up of dressage stars which include Charlotte Dujardin, Ulrik Molgaard, Nicki Crisp, and London and Rio Paralympic Gold Medallist Sophie Wells, all set to compete in the Equitop Myoplast sponsored Inter 1 Freestyle Dressage to Music.

Leading judges Jane Graham and Clive Halsall will be casting their expert eyes over the proceedings and deliberating on the winning combinations as the class

As well as dressage on the opening night, December 28, the session will start with the U25 Showjumping Grand Prix. A full line up of acts including brand new Horse Stunt action from Gilles Fortier, who will be performing his spectacular pyrotechnic routine ‘Phoenix’, will also feature alongside the Shetland Pony Grand National, live music from Rick Parfitt Jr, and the awesome Arenacross UK Freestyle Motocross crew.
