Peter Atkins

peterBorn in Launceston, Tasmania Peter moved to the United States in 1994. He is married to Amy and they have a 3 year old son Owen. Amy and Peter run an Equestrian business and move from their home in Vermont to Florida in the winter months. Peter competed in his first CCI4* in April of this year,
finishing 23rd at the Rolex Kentucky event. Henry Jota Hampton was a Hunter Jumper horse until 3 years ago when Peter took over the ride and then bought the horse. A natural on the cross-country course "Henny" has had a speedy rise to the top level of the sport.

 

 

 

 

Jeremy Beale

bealeJeremy Beale was a member of the British 3 Day Event team from 1957 thru 1964 and won the prestigious Burghley 3 Day Event in 1965 by a margin of over 40 points. He studied under such great horseman as Tony Collings (who himself won the Badminton3 Day Event in the early 50's, was the trainer of the British team and is probably best known as the founder of the Porlock Vale Riding School), Robert Hall, who was the trainer of the British Dressage and dressage coach for the Event team, and Lt. Col. Jack Talbot-Ponsonby, the trainer and Chef d'Equipe of the British Show Jumping team. In fact, Jack Talbot-Ponsonby also invited Jeremy to join the British Show Team, but he was unable to accept due to his commitment to the Event team.

Robin Walker

robin

Robin Walker needs little introduction to US eventing fans – especially if you live in Area VIII, or winter in Florida, or travel the mid-Atlantic and east coast, or stalk the results pages of horse trials! But if you are new to eventing and need an update, Robin can best be described as rider, trainer, teacher, clinician, competitor, breeder, and ICP Level 4 instructor, if not one of the founding forces of the ICP movement.
