Horse of the Year Show is delighted to welcome back the popular children’s range of toy’s LEGO Friends who will be sponsoring the Junior Mountain and Moorland Ridden Championships at HOYS 2016.

Some of HOYS youngest competitors will be taking part in the Junior Mountain and Moorland Ridden Championship with competitor ages ranging from 10 to 14 years old. It will be the first year for this new age range to hold a Championship at the prestigious show and it will be held in the new TopSpec Arena.

The Championship aims to recognise and promote junior riders competing on Small Breed Mountain & Moorland ponies, whose breeding is either Welsh Section A, Welsh Section B, Dartmoor, Exmoor or Shetland. The exciting addition will not only support quality Mountain and Moorland breeds, but also successful young riders of the future.
