Twelve-year-old Sophie Beaumont, pictured here, will be among the competitors at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) in Birmingham this weekend.

Sophie, from Chevington, who is the daughter of Adrian Beaumont who runs the racecourse service at Newmarket’s International Racing Bureau, has qualified her pony Annandale Earl Grey for the 133cm show hunter pony class at NEC on Sunday.

To qualify Sophie and Earl won the HOYS class at the BSPS Summer Championship Show held at Arena UK, near Grantham, in August. This will be Sophie’s second time riding at HOYS, having previously qualified her show pony, Fofsway Truly Scrumptious, for the 128cm class two years ago.
