The Delhi Horse Show has been in existence since the early part of 20th century. It was discontinued in 1979 as the grounds of the Red Fort were no longer available and as a result the public interest waned. The show was revived in 1986 under the aegis of the President’s Estate Polo Club.
This show will feature events ranging from the more serious Dressage and Show Jumping events for India’s top riders to fun gymkhana events for children and teenagers.
