John and Michael Whitaker to miss Olympia: ‘it won’t be the same without them’ *H&H Plus*

Comment by H&H showjumping editor Jennifer Donald

There will be two notable absentees at Olympia, The London International Horse Show, next week — the legendary showjumping brothers John and Michael Whitaker.

Both have been regular competitors at this traditional festive spectacular for the past four decades and are as much a part of Olympia as Santa Claus’s appearance in the Christmas finale and the agility dogs going hell-for-leather over the obstacles.
