Clarksdale, MS--the golden buckle on the cotton belt
He represented Australia at the Lexington WEG, so he is entitled to wear a team coat. However, IIRC, the Australian team coat at WEG was green or blue, and PA had a fundraiser when he was chosen for them for a red team coat. So he's entitled to wear a team coat, and because he lives and competes in the US, he got a red one for WEG, which he apparently continues to use.

I really like Peter Atkins, he seems to have a great partnership with Henny ( I love the way he talks to him XC ) and he seems like a class act. he's entitled to it, he earned it, he can wear it. If it were me, I'd wear the damn thing to work and to bed at night.
I don't think that CoTH is a good place to bring up personal issues with a person. If you were a client, or had a horse in training with him, maybe if there were "issues" but personal ones? We all have them with people. Kind of like airing your divorce or other sour grapes on FB...
Not sure where or why you felt the need to post other than to rain on the parade after a very nice weekend for them.
