    Default No Henny at Badminton?

    Just seen a message on HJU

    Sadly, Peter Atkins & Henny will not be going to Badminton. He had a stupid accident & is currently in the ER (the human).

    How very sad was really looking forward to seeing him.

    I can't find it on their fb Run Henny Run? I am so sorry if this is true.

    Peter wouldn't be the first rider to be sidelined by injury just before Burghley or Badminton. 4* riders with a ticket to one of the 4*'s need to be wrapped in cotton wool, I guess ...

    Peter and Henny Out of Badminton

    What a bummer. Sadly, we won’t get to see Peter Atkins and Henny (HJ Hampton) riding at the Badminton Horse Trials. He is currently in the ER with a broken tibia & an injury to his ankle: “Henny shied and tripped over a stone and went down on me. Stupid accident.”

    Thankfully Henny is ok & as Peter said: “better me than him”.
    They are hoping to reroute to Luhmühlen.


    We are soooo sorry that we won’t get to see Peter & Henny at Badminton and wish Peter a speedy recovery.

    Major bummer! Just glad if he had to be injured it was his leg and not his head. Amazing how a horse like Henny can have a silly accident. But they are, after all, horses and even the best horse, with the best rider can have a spook, trip and go down.

    There is a short video of Peter in the ER on EN with a homemade splint on his leg.

    From the Run Henny Run FB Page...

    I write this with a heavy heart as I have to withdraw Henny from Badminton due to a freak accident this morning. I have broken my ankle and still awaiting full diagniosis and prognosis. As soon as I have that I will update this page and let all of our amazing supporters know my plan for Henny. I am still hopeful that I can continue our bid for the Olympics. Thank you all for your support and we will address Henny's schedule as soon as I have more information.

    Default I feel really bad for them!

    If you read the EN article and see all the frustrations and disappointments it is hard to believe they keep trying!! This is such a tough sport! My hats off to Peter and his team and I hope they can regroup and get going soon!

    Peter is such a class act! Jingles for a fast and uneventful recovery!
