Anna Ross: ‘Riding ability trumps bank balance’ *H&H Plus*

Opinion

  • Anna Ross on a party vibe at Hickstead and reaching the top against the odds

    HICKSTEAD dressage is back with a bang, and now on the iconic showjumping site. Huge thanks to the Bunn family for taking on the challenge of putting on the recent Premier League show, with fabulous arenas, online results online, a livestream, and – vitally – a champagne tent.

    I hope this will be a regular feature (both the show and the champagne tent!). Is it too greedy to ask for an international again?

    The organising committee ran the event like clockwork and although the weather was inclement on the first day, the competitors’ spirits were summed up by an emphatic “who cares” attitude, and we all had a fabulous time.
