Geoff Billington has represented Great Britain twice in the Olympics in the showjumping team as well as winning the DFS Hickstead Derby in 2007. His enthusiasm and competitive spirit make him a crowd favourite. Oliver Townend has also had a very successful career winning both Badminton and Burghley in 2009. Oliver continues to do exceptionally well both internationally and on home soil and is working hard to bring on youngstock from the Harthill Stud.
The Billington - Townend tours are now an established night out for all the family; and sprinkled with a touch of Christmas magic, this one aims to be the best yet!
Each performance will combine educational demonstrations, from schooling young horses right through to breathtaking displays of Oliver and Geoff’s top International horses. The boys have some new tricks up their sleeves for 2012, along with 2 new surprise equine guests who will be making their stage debut!
The hilarious banter, entertainment and fun makes The Edge of Glory Tour suitable for the non-horsey partner as the comedy duo will ensure that there really is something for everyone!
Geoff and Oliver will also ride some of the impressive Harthill Stud stallions and progeny during the show. Oliver and Nina Barbour set up Harthill Stud in 2009 with the primary objective of producing top class event horses for both national and international markets, and launched the Townend Online equestrian clothing and tack store in 2011.
With plenty of antics to amuse the crowds, tips and tricks of the trade and some fabulous Christmas Shopping opportunities, this tour is the perfect excuse to get together with friends and have a giggle.
