Keiva Robertson and her pony Broughton Tiffany landed the spot after impressing at the Royal Highland Show in Ingliston at the weekend.

The Horse of the Year show is taking place at the NEC in Birmingham in October and it is described as the “ultimate celebration of the horse”.

It features competitions in a number of areas like showing, show jumping and dressage.

The Royal Highland Show is the only event in Scotland that competitors can qualify from.

Mum Avie Robertson said her daughter specialises in working hunter, which is a combination of jumping and the flat, but she qualified on the flat.

“It was brilliant,” she said.

“It’s a massive thing. It’s the big thing that you always hope that you’ll get a ticket for.”

Avie added that Keiva, a regular of local pony events, got Broughton Tiffany in 2015 when she was young and has “done all the hard work herself”.
