Adam Cromarty: Amateur athletes should be admired *H&H Plus*

Opinion

H&H’s showjumping columnist reflects on the strength of lower level showjumpers

With everything that has happened this year, we were very lucky to have a venue for the British Showjumping National Championships last week (3–11 August). We should all be grateful to Nina Barbour and her Bolesworth team for their hard work.

Overall, the week seemed successful but I was sad to see the numbers were light on the opening days. I am sure this was caused by various factors but there did seem to be a lack of marketing prior to the event.

Having the National Championships at this stunning venue was a fantastic opportunity for athletes of all levels and ages. My niece was competing her ponies and had been excited about the prospect since the new venue was announced.
