Great Gonerby show rider Abigail Staff was the winner of the NPS/Baileys Horse Feeds New Forest Pony of the Year at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show at Birmingham NEC on Thursday night.

Abigail and her pony Harvey, owned by her parents Kate and Terry Pitcher, also won the Tagg La Liga award for the most consistent New Forest pony competing in HOYS qualifying shows.

The pair won the qualifier at the Royal Norfolk Show in July and a second one at the Stoneleigh Horse Show the following month.

They will be competing at the British Show Pony Society Heritage Pony Championships at Arena UK, Allington, this weekend.
