A Very Special ‘Who Jumped It Best’ from Groton House Horse Trials

The great Groton House Horse Trials, long an eventing destination heralding back to the “golden days” of the sport, will close its doors this year and bring an end to an era at the same time.

When we heard the news, we reached out to longtime Area I photographer Joan Davis of Flatlandsfoto, who has graciously put together this very special edition of Who Jumped It Best from “back in the day” at Groton House. And what a special one it is — some very famous faces, some who are sadly no longer with us, some who are still actively competing or involved in the sport. Which is your favorite? There are too many to choose from!
