H&H’s showjumping columnist reflects on lockdown confusion and resulting frustration
I spent most of last week wondering whether it would take longer to get clear guidance on the impact the new restrictions would have on the equestrian industry in England or for the USA to elect a new president. It was a closely fought race, with both seeming to take longer than they should. One finished with a sense of hope and prosperity, the other left a feeling of discombobulation.
When Boris Johnson made his announcement about lockdown 2.0, I was commentating at a show and played his speech live on the PA. Both riders and staff asked for the volume to be turned up. I’m hoping this was only due to the impending personal and business implications, and not because they preferred the PM’s voice to mine.
