Gonzo the horse is no muppet

MARION HUTCHESON from Hawick and her horse Gonzo have qualified for the Veteran Horse Showing (VHS) Supreme Final at Olympia.

VHS is open to horses over the age of 15 and area qualifiers are held around the country. The pair qualified at Ayr, before going forward to the regional final in Lancashire.

They collected their Olympia ticket with a victory in their age group at the regional final and then took the championship against the other group winners.

Some 28 horses from all over the country will compete in the final in December.
