"Protecting a 'rubbish dump, old packing sheds and Tarmac' by classing it as agricultural land is stopping the British Show Jumping Association from improving facilities"... IT has said'. The Association has said that. Of course it has, islander, it's in the Association's own best interests to play down what's there and make out it's no loss big deal so they can get what they want, a pretty obvious ploy at the best of times.... have you even seen the land in question for yourself...? There is already enough of our island dedicated to those who have enough spare cash to spend on this incredibly expensive hobby, that, as someone else pointed out, becomes an obsession for so many, and the attitude displayed here is sadly indicative of the arrogance of many of those who pursue that hobby. The rules apply to everyone. Period.
