GOOD WEEK BAD WEEK

HUNT­ING

An H&H-er on hound ex­er­cise was so in­spired by the H&H hunt­ing spe­cial cover photo, she tried to recre­ate it over a sparse but size­able hedge. Un­for­tu­nately, the re­sult was not quite as im­pres­sive. “I’m go­ing through a fall­ing-off phase,” she said glumly.

TROLLS

Good old Anna Ross spoke out on a Bri­tish Dres­sage fo­rum rule change which means mem­bers can­not use pseu­do­nyms. Back­ing the move, Anna added: “To those who have writ­ten about me hid­ing be­hind names, I know who you are any­way… I’ve just cho­sen not to re­act.” No flies on that girl!

MONKS

A press re­lease told H&H of a group of monks mov­ing out of the monastery while it is be­ing re­fur­bished. Which is all very well, but we’re not en­tirely sure what the brethren have to do with horses, or in­deed hounds…

BOW TIES

We will not name the H&H awards rev­eller who was sport­ing an un­tied bow tie on the dance floor. Noth­ing wrong with that, of course, but when chal­lenged as to whether he could re-tie it, the dancer turned pink. It emerged he had brought a pre-tied one, and an un­tied one with which to sub­sti­tute it for the “party look”. Hmm.

HAND­BAGS

Talk­ing of the H&H awards, top dres­sage rider Spencer Wil­ton was lucky in the raf­fle – win­ning a Mul­berry hand­bag. Pos­si­bly not what he’d have cho­sen, al­though it might be handy to keep Su­per­nova’s groom­ing kit in?

FOOT­BALLERS

A news­pa­per re­ported that a Pre­mier League player was “held up” on his way to train­ing by a horse. And to prove it, there was a pic­ture of the player in his Merc while a horse crossed the road. Next week, foot­baller held up in red traf­fic light shock.
