Renowned Scottish Horse breeder Hugh Paterson, from Barnpark, Kirkinner was beaming with pride last week when Miami Moonbeam, his homebred Scottish Sports Pony, gained a creditable fifth place at the famous Horse of the Year Show at the NEC in Birmingham.

Miami Moonbeam, now stabled in Cheshire, and ridden by Nicole Kershaw, was competing in the Blue Chip Pony Newcomers Show Jumping Championships against 24 other pony and rider combinations from all over the country. The pair got through to the jump-off and went clear again in a time of 41.37.
