Horse Heroes: Tatton Winter

William Tatton Winter was a British painter who lived from 1855 to 1928. Sue Broughton, Winter’s granddaughter and a Thoroughbred breeder in New Zealand, named one of the foals from her 2000 crop for her grandfather. That foal, sired by the New Zealand Thoroughbred stallion Drums of Time, went on to compete at the upper levels of the sport of eventing with four different riders on two different continents under the name Tatton Winter.

Now on Course: Giving Thanks to the Dedicated Trainer

I want to share a story about someone who inspires me and I believe deserves the recognition. I returned to riding four years ago after about a decade out of the saddle; moonlighting as a busy professional adult instead of the horse crazy child I really am internally.

Now on Course: Tracey Hopper Finds Her Dream Horse

There are so many different sayings about horses. "Never look a gift horse in the mouth," "No horse is ever free," "If you want to be a millionaire with horses, start as a billionaire." Horses are incredibly forgiving and they fill in places we cannot fill ourselves. My dream horse came to me in the form of a malnourished, emaciated, just gelded, 6-year-old rescue. He was confiscated from his prior owner by our local regional animal protective services after he and several other animals were found in horrendous conditions.
