Watch the Hermès U.S. Show Jumping Team get their game face on for the day's great result. They're sitting in second place, and this is what it looked like behind the scenes. Groom Alex Warriner and team equine physiotherapist Janus Marquis share their snaps.


Alex Warriner, barn manager for U.S. show jumper Kent Farrington, and Janus Marquis, equine physiotherapist, have agreed to take Chronicle readers behind the scenes at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games with a photo tour each day. Check out what it’s like back at the barns!
