General Interest
Hero / Idol British showjumper John Whitaker. (proequest.com, 20 Apr 2011)
Injuries In 2011 he broke his neck in a fall and was out of the saddle for several months. (independent.ie, 06 Jan 2016)
Sporting philosophy / motto "I believe every horse has a key, and every horse wants to do what we're asking them. It's our job to find their key. Every day we're trying to find a nice way to explain to them what we want them to do. I try to think of that every time I get on a horse." (proequest.com, 20 Apr 2011)
