Great night, last night, entertaining a few of our owners at Olympia horse show. It really is great family entertainment and it is such a pity that it is no longer on terrestrial television.
Personally, I find it very hard to understand why show jumping no longer has popular appeal as in the days of David Broom and Harvey Smith. No doubt, the experts at the Punter’s Post will say I am being naïve and that, without significant betting, there is no place for it amongst mainstream sports but I can’t really understand what went wrong. Maybe someone can enlighten me. It was prime-time TV when I was a kid.
