If you were in the spotlight at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) last week (4-8 October), it’s likely you’re lying in an exhausted heap on the sofa. Or more likely, still unloading the lorry.
But if you were just trying to keep up with the action from the stands or at home, we’d excuse you for being equally exhausted: with five days of equine overload it’s hard to keep up. So sit back and enjoy some memorable moments from 2017…
Don’t miss our full report and analysis from the show in this week’s issue of Horse & Hound magazine (12 October 2017)
In the spotlight
Paralympian Sophie Wells is presented with the Equestrian of the Year award, fresh from her moment on the podium at the European Para Dressage Championships in August. Sophie also made her HOYS debut this year, finishing third in the Dressage Future Elite Championship aboard C Fatal Attraction
