Hickstead, the home of British showjumping.

The All England Jumping Course, realized by Douglas Bunn and opened in 1960, is one of the most famous showjumping venues in the world. It hosts a number of prestigious shows including the CSI 4* Hickstead Derby in June, the CSIO 5* Royal International Horse Show in July and the All England September Tour.

The question

Tradition is the sum of successful innovations.

Authentic and unique are 2 keywords that immediately pop to mind when thinking of Hickstead. So the question was rather simple: introduce us some designs of undisputed origin, not a copies, but real creations.

A minimum requirement is poles of 350 cm and preferably also wings that carry the size of the event (literally and figuratively).

The solution

Big, Bold and Beautiful.

For an arena of such dimensions (1.8 acres), Hickstead needs obstacles that are not only a sporting challenge for the riders, but also catch the eye of the public. That means thinking very wide and big when designing obstacles for sponsors.

We survey our clients extensively to get as detailed a picture as possible of the image they are looking for. Then we always check our ideas with the course builder before proceeding to production. For transport from Belgium to the UK, we can fortunately count on a faithful logistics partner. This way, we avoid unnecessary worries for both the customer and the organization.

Having worked with Top Jumps since 2021 we have been impressed with their efficient and effective service.

Quality build, durability, practicality come to mind when considering newly designed jumps, we searched long and hard to source a supplier who could match these qualities – Top Jumps came highly recommended by several international course builders, reputation maters!

We have no hesitation in placing valued clients and sponsors directly in contact, to create new and bold designs, in keeping with Hickstead’s style and reputation within a global sporting community.
