One of Scotland’s top equestrian events, The Scottish Horse Show, will not take place in 2022

Mrs Tweetie Nimmo, the Show’s Chairman recently made the announcement with a caveat that she hoped that it would return in 2023 with a new structure. Over the years the Show has built up a favourable reputation with exhibitors both north and south of the Border with an abundance of qualifying classes for HOYS. Contrary to statements posted on social media, Mrs Nimmo is keen to emphasise that her decision preceded the allocation of HOYS qualifiers this year. In a supporting statement, Grandstand Media looks forward to a full schedule of HOYS classes on the Show’s return in 2023.

Mrs Nimmo’s lengthy association with the Show spans several decades and as recent Chairman she brought it back home to Ingliston, the site of the initial show staged by the Edinburgh Riding Club in 1961. It was with great sadness that her Vice Chairman, Allan Robertson, passed away in December after a long struggle with ill health, leaving her with sole responsibility for most aspects of the Show’s organisation. Combining these duties with other personal commitments, it is little wonder that she is looking to restructure the event so that it can come back to the show calendar with renewed vigour.
