The All England Jumping Course, Hickstead, was the dream and brain child of one man - Douglas Bunn. Now run by his family, the showground remains one of the premier equestrian venues in the world. Almost every great show jumper, horse and rider, has competed at Hickstead since we first opened our doors in 1960. In 2010, The All England Jumping Course is now approaching its 60th anniversary as the home of international showjumping in Great Britain. Showing classes at Hickstead almost now out number showjumping, with competitors travelling far and wide to compete at the world famous venue.
