Horses continue to bring people #Together every day. And over the last few years, renowned Eventing competitor Phillip Dutton and his family have definitely witnessed this power firsthand. Not only did Phillip and his horse "Z" work together to qualify for #Tryon2018, but after Phillip's step daughter suffered a riding accident, the equestrian community banded together to support her during recovery. Hear more about the story from Phillip himself with our latest #Together feature below. 💕

In Tryon2018‘s latest #Together feature video, Team USA rider Phillip Dutton talks about his early life with horses and bringing along his “bit of a fireball” WEG mount, Z, a 10-year-old Zangersheide (Asca X Bellabouche) owned by Tom Tierney, Simon Roosevelt, Suzanne Lacy, Annie Jones and Caroline Moran, from the one-star level to the World Equestrian Games.
#Together can also apply to Phillip’s personal life. He and his wife Evie felt that sense of family and community when their daughter LeeLee Jones suffered a traumatic brain injury in a riding accident in 2016. The support they’ve received from the equestrian world and beyond has helped both LeeLee and the family fight on.
Go Eventing Together.
