Now here’s a face we haven’t seen in quite awhile! That’s right, Peter Atkins’ Henry Jota Hampton made a social media appearance this week, showing off his experience at 19 years young to one of Peter’s students, Katie.
Henry had an awesome week, last week he got to XC school with Katie, XC is his favorite game! He hasn’t jumped a XC…
Nevermind that the last time “Henny”, Peter’s partner for the 2010 World Equestrian Games and multiple other five-stars, saw cross country was at Badminton six years ago. Trustworthy as ever, Henny clearly relishes his job of confidence boosting professor to Katie, who is getting back into riding after having a baby a few months ago.
What a special opportunity to learn from these schoolmasters. It’s a true win-win for horses who love their jobs and riders who are eager to learn from them. We’ll always miss riding along with Peter and Henny as they joyfully tackled the big tracks, but this is a very suitable alternative. Go Henny!
Throwback time! Relive Peter and Henny’s cross country run at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. You’ll want to watch this one with sound!
Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month? In honor of this and in an effort to further educate more about childhood cancer, FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips has created a Kick Childhood Cancer strip, 25% of proceeds from which will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
