Who are your favourite riders?
Could be someone famous, or just someone you know
I have a few, the most recent being Andrew Nicholson. I hadn't seen him ride until last weekend, but he is amazing! Performed a textbook ride round the Xc course at Badminton... So balanced and such quiet hands, especially nice as - look away now if you are of a sensitive nature - male eventers have a tendency to be a bit slapdash
Another eventer - Mary King. She is so experienced, really knows her stuff - had such a successful riding career, and now runs a very good breeding programme! Also, unlike a lot of top riders, she was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, so has built herself up from more or less nothing.
Carl Hester, such a quiet rider and his show record speaks for itself!
William Fox-Pitt! Strangely enough, I think I may be slightly in love with this guy... But yes, another awesome eventer, how he looks so elegant for someone of his height I have no idea, but well done to him
