You Never Know Who You’ll Bump Into at Badminton

It was an utter pleasure to catch up with none other than Janie Atkinson, former director of the Rolex Kentucky Three Day, event this afternoon. Just as two long days of dressage, fighting with sub-par wifi and a tiny pang for ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ were beginning to overwhelm me, Janie and Norma were rays of sunshine straight from the Bluegrass and were kind enough to stop and chat.

I would have kept them talking much longer but they did have a meeting (read: busy lives!) to get to, and the wind was annoying but Janie did reveal her favourite to win, although she laughed and said it’s probably no secret, “William Fox-Pitt is like my English son!” Many thanks to them both for chatting and Go the Rolex Grand Slam of Eventing!
