Mark Phillips: ‘competitions are won or lost by fractions’ [H&H VIP]

  • All credit to International Event Riders Association president Bruce Haskell and FEI rider representative Daisy Berkeley for coordinating the widespread misgivings over the new frangible fence rule. Everyone is happy to see the 21 penalties go, but I believe 11 faults is still a big hit. These days so many of the big competitions are won or lost by fractions.
