Talento Diamond (pictured) qualifed for HOYS in the show hunter qualifier at Wellington with Jane Kennedy.

Jane trains with Paul Friday and competed at the side-saddle championships at Addington earlier this year.

She says: “I have always wanted to ride at HOYS and we tried 3 times to qualify. This time we were lucky!”

Layla Killoran picked up the remaining HOYS place on Maria Killoran’s 5-year-old bay gelding, Magilligan.

“This is the first season that he is showing properly and it has been my dream for the last 10 years to qualify for HOYS,” says Layla.
