We Have To Examine Show Jumping's Prize Money Structure

Our columnist believes there’s something wrong with the system if a young rider can make more money competing as an amateur than as a professional.

If you’re a junior or amateur reading this column, please keep your mind open and don’t feel that I’m against you. I want to create a better future for you. 

The issue is prize money, but it’s more complicated than who wins what; it’s about the sport as a whole. I want us to create a system of solid grassroots riding so that we can develop high-level riders in every division.
