Rebecca Penny: It is the ponies that are being judged *H&H VIP*


I read with interest a letter in Horse & Hound (16 August) from a reader whose family had recently become involved in showing. There was subsequently an online survey published by The Showing Register (TSR) on whether a rider who qualifies an animal for Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) and the Royal International (RIHS) should be the only person allowed to ride it at the final.
