A number of equestrians have been named in The Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
Brough Scott, founder of the Racing Post and chairman of the Injured Jockeys’ Fund, said he was “very touched” to receive an MBE for his services to sport.
Major Waygood, who left the army in April, said: “It’s a lovely way to finish a 30-year career.”
Also receiving MBEs were Antonia Thoday for voluntary service to Chesham High School Pony Club branch, Buckinghamshire, and Ann Pattinson, for services to the Meirionydd Special Riding Group and to disabled people in Gwynedd, Wales.
