The championships begin in earnest on Saturday, reaching a thrilling conclusion on Sunday, with all being held on the venue's immaculate artificial surfaces.
There will also be some fun jumping classes including a top score and pairs competitions, plus a barbecue, disco and brilliant entertainment to make this a truly memorable occasion.

If that wasn't enough to tempt you, this could also be your chance to appear in the pages of Horse & Hound as the show will receive detailed coverage, both in the magazine and at, with a team of H&H reporters on site to hear your stories and interview all the champions.
"It's fabulous news that we are able to extend our competition series to showjumping this year, as well as dressage," says Pippa Roome, Horse & Hound's magazine editor.
"We are building on the success of our inaugural grassroots eventing competition last year, where riders had a wonderful experience competing in a big event atmosphere, making friends and meeting new challenges.
"We look forward to sharing that with more riders this year at Arena UK in the H&H Festival of Showjumping."
Arena UK general manager Teresa Stratford is also looking forward to the show.
