GOOD WEEK BAD WEEK
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.
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!
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…
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.
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?
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.
