In case you hadn’t heard, one of GB’s top eventers, and ERA chairman Francis Whittington is returning to the US next week to give a clinic before his Badminton preparations, and the sixteen-odd competition horses on his yard in England mean travelling is out of the question. Seeing as he’ll be in Ocala, it almost seemed rude not to give the Eventing Nation another live blog, and who better to pair him with this time than with one of the US’s top eventers and PHC chairman Jon Holling.
In an interesting dynamic, both men are startlingly similar, living on different sides of the world. Both supremely talented, hard-working, both active within the eventing community, both poised on the verge of long and brilliant careers, both family men and fathers of young children…
Start thinking about everything you want to ask them – about their respective organisations, competing in the UK/US, finding those lovely horses, preparing for the big events, teaching philosophy, balancing family and a professional life?
The time – 6pm
The date – Next Tuesday 17th January
