For all the moms out there in the Eventing Nation, here’s to you! Thanks for driving us to the barn, supporting our horsey habits, being our biggest fans, building us up when we’re down and giving us a kick in the pants when we need one. Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all Mom’s out there. I’m incredibly grateful and lucky to have @jesshampf along for this wild ride. Of course, I can’t forget my Mom, @marilyn.payne.921 and Mom #2 @joanhampf! Hudson loved Jess’ flowers, smelling them was still an abstract concept. 🤣 #mothersday #family #bestkids
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, including my best friend and wife, you deserve some sort of award for all that you do for us and our little girl ❤️❤️
Happy Mother’s Day to these two beautiful women! I think my mom’s picture is the best interpretation of what it was like to raise me! Jessica Montgomery Carol Clark Montgomery

And last but not least I’ve got to give a shout-out to my own mom,who had the misfortune of raising three eventing-crazed daughters, none of whom were particularly gifted at the sport. At any given event, chances were good that at least one of us would fall off. VHS tapes document the all-too-frequent spectacle of my mom dropping the camera and curse-sprinting across the course to scrape us off the ground and give us a leg back up. But she never ceased encouraging us to pursue our passion, even if it meant working overtime and trading in beach vacations for camping trips at the Kentucky Horse Park. All with a smile on her face, because our happiness was her happiness, and she knew that horses made us happy.
To my mom, and eventing moms around the world, Happy Mothers Day! Go Eventing.
