Equality in the show-jumping ring

Great letter in the Irish Daily Mail today  -couldn't have put it better really. There are a few other sports where men and women compete directly, but show-jumping is probably one of the more prominent. 

And the other equine sports of course - dressage, showing, racing and so on. Think of Irish jockey Katie Walsh finishing third in the Grand National at Aintree last year or American/Hong-Kong show-jumper Raena Leung becoming the first HK rider to make the FEI finals this year.
