Stuart Hollings: the first Cuddy in-hand qualifier of the season [H&H VIP]

  • The Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) in-hand competition has always been a particular favourite of mine — and not just because I have judged the final or been on the “foal end” of four winning mares: Culross Maid Of Honour (1992), Ainsty Merry Maid (reserve 1989), Huttons Ambo Camelia (reserve 1997) and Mountain Firefly (champion 2007).
