and... action!

OVER the past few years, television producers have asked me for suggestions of riders they could screen test with a view to them appearing in programmes about a particular equestrian sport. Showjumping has the greatest resonance for the non-equestrian audience. The Daily Mail will blithely describe Zara Phillips as a “showjumper”. The man on the street can talk to you about Harvey Smith’s V — for victory, or otherwise — sign at Hickstead. And the wonderful Jilly Cooper gave the whole sport an air of intrigue with the publication of Riders. So it’s not surprising that this is the sport production companies are most interested in featuring, rather than eventing — the more popular in terms of live spectators — or dressage, the more popular in terms of participation. So the producers ask…

brilliant brash does the double

SCOTT BRASH made it back-to-back wins in the Global Champions Tour London grand prix, on a young horse who “gave him everything”. Scott and the nine-year-old Hello Mr President were first to go in a seven-combination jump-off under a blistering sun at the Royal Hospital Chelsea on Saturday (4 August). And although the six who came after did their best, Scott’s round proved unbeatable. “He felt fantastic,” Scott said. “I’m delighted with him. I thought he was a year off winning a big grand prix like this, but I’m hungry to win in front of my home crowd, and he gave me everything today.” Scott, who won the class last year on Hello Forever, said he was unsure after his round whether he had done enough to win again. He also paid tribute to…

scientists look into how, where and why we whip

SCIENTISTS behind research on whips hope to ensure they are “the right type, for the right purpose, and used in the right way”. Jane Williams, of University Centre Hartpury, is one of a team including David Marlin, Hayley Randle and Linda Greening looking into issues including how riders use whips, how they believe they use them and others’ perception of this use. A survey was completed by more than 2,000 people in a week. “The response has been amazing,” Dr Williams told H&H. H&H reported on 5 July that although there are rules on whip use, no non-racing regulator has attempted to standardise design for competition. At the time, Dr Williams said this showed the need for more research. She and her team hope, after the survey, to extend the research. “You see a lot of…
