Complainant Name:
Mr David Puttock

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Horse and Hound

Mr David Puttock of Kineton complained that an article was misleading in its suggestion that he and a number of other show pony competition judges had been disciplined by the British Show Pony Society because they had been found to have cheated at events.

The magazine wrote directly to the complainant to apologise for any distress that the article had caused. It also published a letter from the chairman of the BSPS clarifying that the complainant and the other judges had not been disciplined for cheating and it removed the original article from its website archive.

Report: 62
