The cover artwork was designed by Sally Chapman of the Chapman Collection and depicts the equine family owned by OHP. These horses are not just our companions; they are champions in their own right, having competed in some of the world’s most prestigious three-day events. From the thrilling jumps at Burghley, to the challenging courses of Pau, Maryland, Luhmühlen, Aachen, Boekelo, and Kentucky — each horse has a tale of bravery and excellence.
