Shirley Light: Now is the time to mend showjumping *H&H Plus*

Opinion

Times are tough for British show centres. With so many riders at the Spanish and Portuguese tours, and at other European venues — who can blame them? — winter classic shows are left struggling for entries.

Many of the riders at Keysoe last weekend had horses who could be future international performers, but it breaks my heart to watch them jumping big fences, going clear and ending up with no prize money because there weren’t enough entries.
