New Book - Legend a True Story

Posted: Mon 19th September 2016

Legend – the  remarkable true story about an extraordinary pony whose success in the showring has never been repeated.


In a beautifully illustrated book published by Forelock Books Legend’s owner and rider Lady Elizabeth Kitson has recounted their wonderful tale from both hers and Legend’s point of view.


The story begins in Surrey during the Second World War and moves to Dartmoor where, not yet five, Elizabeth is the first to ride Legend. After numerous falls, Elizabeth and Legend finally become a team that goes on to win show after show, Royal International Horse Show three years running from 1946 to 1948, and at the first Horse of The Year Show in 1949 and to success, that has not been repeated.


An inspiration to a generation of young riders and a nostalgic reminder for older generations, the story is as much about the period and life in the country during and just after WWII, as it is about Legend and could be enjoyed by riders and non-riders alike.

Vote Now for Terry Pattinson - Horse & Hound Awards Volunteer of the Year

Posted: Fri 16th September 2016

Vote now for Terry Pattinson, 76


The stats: Terry has stewarded for the British Show Pony Society (BSPS) for 30 years, as well as helping his wife Pat at local shows (and mucking out for the grandchildren).


2016 highlight? The BSPS sports pony classes at Burghley. The children were so excited to be there, because it is such a different show to the rest. And they all really wanted to do their best.


Top tips for volunteers? Make sure you keep a sense of perspective.


What the fans say… “Terry is the hugely popular father figure of the BSPS, beloved of children and parents alike. He’s the steward who soothes stressed mothers, encourages nervous children and whispers magic words to errant ponies. He is never without a kind word and a modest smile, and never loses his cool.” Polly Eddis
