Complainant Name:
Mr David Puttock

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Native Pony

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.

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
