LET­TER OF THE WEEK

Horse & Hound - - Letters -

Sir — I so agree with Pammy Hut­ton’s opin­ion (25 Oc­to­ber), ques­tion­ing whether ad­vanced dres­sage horses should be down­graded.

I saw an ad­ver­tise­ment for a 25-year-old ad­vanced dres­sage horse from a well­known rider still at the top — just. I rang her to ask why she was sell­ing an old horse for £1,500 that could end up go­ing any­where, to any rider. As we know, just be­cause a horse is old does not mean it is easy or safe.

I got a ver­bal fury of this and that, and be­fore I could ac­tu­ally say any­thing, the tele­phone went dead — she had hung up.

Let’s hope that the horse went to a good home, but I doubt it. Mi­randa Beau­fort Lit­tle Bad­minton, Glos
