A show jumper from Great Gonerby is heading for next week’s Horse of the Year Show at the NEC for the second year running.
Twenty-four-year-old Abigail Staff and her pony, a Welsh Section D gelding, Kala Flash Jack qualified for the show after a recent win at the North of England Pony Show at Arena UK, Allington.
Abigail was thrilled last year to reach the last five of the HOYS competition and is hoping to achieve an even higher place in this year’s final.
Following the HOYS, the pairing’s next competition will be back at Arena UK when they contest the British Show Pony Heritage Championship Show in the hope of qualifying for the London International Horse Show at Olympia for the second successive year.
