Complainant Name:
Mr David Puttock

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Native Pony

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

Resolution:
The magazine wrote directly to the complainant to express regret for any distress that the article had caused. It also reported on a letter from the chairman of the BSPS, which had been published in another magazine, thereby clarifying that the judges had not been disciplined for cheating but for a failure to follow the rules properly.

Report: 63
