In the world of in-hand showing, the Cuddy supreme in-hand championship at Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) is the one everyone strives to win. Competition is always fierce as only the very best examples of breed and type qualify from shows held around the country and only the champion from each qualifier goes through.
To celebrate this ultimate in-hand accolade, we take a look back through the H&H picture archives at the ponies and horses who have claimed the prestigious title since the turn of the century in our slideshow (top).

Congratulations to all their connections.
