Britain’s Horsiest County: sporting icons

  • As part of our survey into Britain’s Horsiest County, we asked our section editors, who are responsible for all the various aspects of equestrian sport that H&H covers, to nominate the people, places and events that are most important to our sport this year.

    Based on their experience of talking to our readers and other experts in their respective fields, here are their nominations for:

    Equestrian legends: the current equestrian “names”

    Iconic events: the events that set the standard in equestrian sport

    Equestrian megacentres: centres that attract riders from far and wide
