Supreme judges announced for HOYS 2019 [plus change in judge]

The chase for the illustrious HOYS qualifiers is soon to get underway and tickets are already on sale for the show which runs from 2nd – 6th October this year. 

The ultimate accolade for showing competitors is the Supreme Pony and Supreme Horse of the Year which is decided on the Sunday evening ahead of the finale. 

This year’s supreme judges, who will have the honour of choosing the overall supreme champions, will be Tim Price and Terry Court. 

Tim Price is well-known in the industry and has been involved in Horse of the Year Show in numerous capacities for the last 30 years. Terry Court is renowned for his long-term involvement with Brightwells as a master auctioneer for over 60 years. Both judges have a vast experience in the equestrian industry which they will be able to combine on the night to reach a decision on who will take each of the titles for 2019.
