An Australian team member rode the X-C course with a Helmet cam so we can experience the rider's perspective.
Gotta love the ears!
Peter & Henny:
Henry Jota Hampton, Peter Atkins (AUS) finished in 24th place.
If you always wanted to see what it is like over those big jumps....

Peter Atkins has previously and plans to again hold an eventing clinic in Sheridan, IN at Come Again Farm. (formerly Triple Creek Morgan Farm and Lowery Stables).
owner/trainer LeeAnn Zobbe is a pro saddlebred sport horse fan! She has worked with several over the years. Commenting positively on their heart, stamina, courage and honesty. I would highly recomend her if you are looking to send a horse out for non traditional SS training! Having personally taken several lesson with her on an ASB.

Check out Henny's webpage at www.runhennyrun.com. I am a huge fan of both horse and rider.
Henny and Peter have a great story, and Henny is truly a special horse. Their 24th finish was BRILLIANT out of 79 pairs (21 of which did not make it past the cross country phase). Peter and Henny were initially reserves for the Australian Eventing Team, and were called in to compete as individuals when one of the horses shipped in from Australia became ill and withdrew. Henny is still fairly young and this was his first competition of this calibre, so to finish well into the first half was awesome. The crowd went absolutely nuts when they went clear in stadium.
Can't wait to see what Henny does at Rolex next April after Peter's had all winter to work on his dressage.
I wouldn't hesitate to go to one of Peter's clinics if I had a horse to take. Definitely take advantage of the opportunity!

Love these two, absolutely LOVED that ride. He is a very sympathetic rider, such a joy to feel his lightness with the horse, see him making much of Henny when he got through the combinations...another horse and rider that I'm a total groupie over! :wub:
For those who dont know, you can also buy T shirts to support them that say "Run, Henny Run!!" on the front of them. I know its what I want for Christmas this year!
