Wellington sure put on a spectacle of a show, as they do every year. As someone who spends a good chunk of my day covering the H/J side of Welly World, I can only imagine the novelty for spectators, owners, business professionals and sponsors in seeing the eventers jump right through the VIP tent. It captures a certain elegance of Wellington and insanity of eventing in a single, spectacular (and sometimes gasp-inducing) moment. You do you, Welly, and we’ll be watching.
