Nineteen-year-old Casper is owned by the Countess of Shrewsbury and has competed at HOYS most years since he began his career as a young flat pony.
Tori, who works in retail three days a week and produces the ponies alongside, continued: “Also in the 122cm section is Sue Hinchcliffe and Tammy Heathcote’s 16-year-old Welsh section B Roseberry Lullaby, who qualified at Moreton-in-Marsh. Lullaby will be joined by the same owners’ 133cm finalist Roseberry Model May, a 14-year-old gelding who picked up his ticket at NPS Area 7.
“In the 143cm class, my own Highland Cairns Fergus will be competing after winning at the New Forest show, and finally, in the exceeding 143cm class we have the 11-year-old Connemara mare PSF Molly, owned by Barbara Sargeant, who also qualified at Suffolk show.
