Olympic gold medal-winners Peter Charles and Scott Brash will be competing at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) next week (3-7 October).

They will be joined by 13 other competitors, drawn from British Showjumping’s rider rankings, plus wild cards, the final two of which are decided at the major championships meeting at Arena UK, Lincs (19-21 September).

Other riders confirmed for HOYS include John and Robert Whitaker, Guy Williams, William Funnell, Robert Smith, Phillip Miller and Tim Stockdale.

As H&H went to press, Tina Fletcher – who suffered a recent ankle injury – was hoping to join them.
