HERE is a photo to remind us of the beauty of nature and the beauty of the horse – we all need a reminder that there are still a few good things in this world!
The photo was taken at the famous Claiborne Farm in Kentucky, the stud where Horse Chestnut stood during his spell in the United States.
The photographer is Dell Hancock, a granddaughter of the farm’s founder and one of the four children of the man who made Claiborne Farm famous, the late, legendary A. B. (Bull) Hancock. Dell took a variety of beautiful “summer snaps” which can be found on Facebook if you’d like to see more.
In 2015, Seth Hancock stepped aside and his son Seth Walker Hancock Jr. took the helm. Walker is the fourth in a line of Hancock men who have guided and nurtured a major agricultural pursuit with steadfast integrity and dedication for what is good for the horse.
In support and protection of our sport, we should all promote the same values here in South Africa.
