A teenager who competed in a televised horsemanship show in America faces a longer wait before he is allowed to reveal the results of the competition.

Western riding enthusiast Joe Midgley, from Denholme, landed a role in master horseman Chris Cox’s ‘The Horsemanship Showdown’.

The 19-year-old returned from competing in Texas late last year, and the contest was originally scheduled to be broadcast this week. However, his mother Judith said the screening has been put back to Tuesday, February 18, when it will be shown on satellite and cable channel RFD TV.

“I’m disappointed it’s been put back, but we’ll be getting a DVD, so we should be able to watch it at any time,” she said.
