The world's leading showjumpers will compete in Stratford in June after the organisers found a new venue for London's Global Champions Tour event. They had to change the venue after a plan to stage it in Kensington Gardens was rejected by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

However, the Tour has now arranged to stage the event at The International Quarter, next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford. It will be held from June 6th to the 9th and ticket prices will cost between £10 and £50.
