‘I FREELY ADMIT THAT THE BEST OF MY FUN I OWE IT TO HORSE AND HOUND’ - Whyte Melville AFTER speaking to New Forest commoner Lyndsey Stride for this week’s “All in a day’s work” (p16), I’d like to move there. The idea of nightjars flying round the house catching moths in an evening, and walking the children to school through the forest rather than dodging buses, checking the ponies en route, sounds like a lifestyle from another era. Hard graft no doubt, but seemingly idyllic. It’s interesting how we seek escapism through anything from horses to mindfulness. The pressures of today are different from those of 50 years ago, but no less real. Some want to get away from life’s stresses by escaping to the country. Others see no escape but…

fei acts to correct ranking blunders

TWO international showjumping tours held in December and January have been sensationally stripped of Olympics and Longines world rankings points after the FEI admittedthat some show schedules were mistakenly approved. The decision means that Sri Lanka’s Mathilda Karlsson loses her individual place at the Tokyo Games; it has been restored to the original contender, Hong Kong’s Kenneth Chen. H&H reported last month that multiple December showjumping fixtures held at Villeneuve-Loubet, France, and Damascus, Syria, included Olympic and Longines world rankings points classes with entries confined to just a tiny handful of riders (news, 30 January). In January, Villeneuve staged further shows with drastically limited invitations. Several riders significantly improved their Longines world rankings before the launch of the new FEI merit-based CSI invitation system this month (3 February). The FEI ordered an investigation and on…

police investigate australia auction fraud allegations

POLICE are investigating allegations that money raised through a charity auction in aid of those affected by the Australian bushfires was kept by the auction’s organiser. H&H reported last month (news, 9 January) that one of a number of initiatives set up by the UK equestrian community, a group called We Support Australia Charity Auction, had some 4,000 members. Lots offered included semen from top stallions and equestrian items and crafts. Bidding was to close on 11 January and the money was to go to various Australian charities. But, a spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police told H&H last week (14 February): “On Saturday, 1 February we were contacted with reports of fraud in Peterborough. It has been alleged that a woman set up a charity via an auction site and kept donations for her…

tokyo 2020 team line-up is confirmed

THE line-up of teams due to compete for dressage medals at the Tokyo Paralympics has been confirmed. As well as Great Britain, the Netherlands and Germany, who qualified at the 2018 World Equestrian Games (WEG), the USA, Italy, Sweden, Canada, Singapore, Denmark, Belgium, Australia and Austria will be competing. These places were on offer to the top seven FEI-ranked nations, apart from the three that qualified at WEG, and the top countries in Asia, Oceania and the Americas. Host nation Japan will also field a team and while Russia has qualified, its participation is yet to be confirmed owing to the country’s doping scandal (news, 9 January). Each country may send up to four riders to Tokyo. Britain has won at every Paralympics since dressage was introduced in 1996. But they will face…

DARGUN The 12-year-old gelding, now owned by the Dargun Syndicate and who was campaigned up to CCI5* level by Emily King, has joined Piggy French’s string ahead of the 2020 season. TIGER ROLL The back-to-back Grand National winner shares the top weight of 11st 10lb for the 2020 race (4 April) with stablemate Delta Work.

fight continues against ‘mad’ high speed two

CAMPAIGNERS are continuing to fight the “madness” of High Speed Two (HS2), despite its winning over the prime minister. Boris Johnson gave the highly controversial rail link the “green signal” on 11 February. H&H has reported on its effect on the equestrian community, with some evicted with no assurance of when they will be given compensation (news, 19 December). Campaigner Lizzy Williams told H&H the project, the cost of which was about £56bn in the 2015 budget but an estimate has recently put at £106bn, makes no economic sense. “The £56bn approval is also based on things that won’t happen,” she said. “It was based on 18 trains an hour and now that’s going to be 14, so the number of passengers decreases. It should go to the public accounts committee, which scrutinises…
