The long running battle over the control of Henny is almost complete and the great news is that it has come down in favour of the famous combination of Peter Atkins and Henny. Here is a copy of the ruling by the Judge, but in short the news is good for Peter and Henny.
There is a more detailed analysis by Samantha Clark on Eventing Nation here and as Samantha was the one who brought the story to the world I will leave the last comment to her.
There have been lots if comments about this situation on forums around the world and on both my site and Eventing Nation. Many of them mention that a good contract may have resolved this, perhaps.
However, my concern as with the Sam & Totilas situation is that this is not good for horse sport. Things like this will change the way our sport operates and probably not for the better. Some of the best horseman I know are crap businessman. I don’t know Peter well enough to know if this is the case but what I do know is that the only people who will win out of this situation are the lawyers and this is not good.
I would love to hear Linda’s side of the story but unfortunately we probably wont as the lawyers are now involved. This is a shame.
