Great Gonerby show jumper Abigail Staff has qualified for the fourth year running for the Horse of the Year Show at the NEC, Birmingham, next month.

This time, with a new mount, a New Forest pony called Harvey’s Magic Moment, Abigail not only won and qualified for HOYS at the Royal Norfolk Show in July, the pair followed up with a second HOYS qualifier win at the Stoneleigh Horse Show last month.

Abigail’s mother Kate said: “Abigail is just so thrilled to have qualified for the show which is referred to as the ‘world’s greatest horse show’.”
