Greetings Horse Nation, my name is John, yes that John. I spend some of my time writing for Horse Nation’s sister site, Eventing Nation, and most of my time fervently answering the hundreds of emails we get each day asking if we are aware that Leslie Wylie is crazy.

Henny, and his rider, Peter Atkins of Australia, took the eventing world by storm in 2010 with a series of helmet cam videos. The videos showcased the best eventing courses in the US, but more importantly they showcased Peter’s exuberant love for Henny and Henny’s love for eventing.
