A unique fund-raising plan is in place....fans can support the trip by purchasing carrots and apples ($10), the Badminton Entry Fee ($537), or Henry's shipping ($10,000 -yes $ 1 0, 0 0 0). See the options at http://www.shop.runhennyrun.com
"Henny gets a lot of carrots and apples, buying one or multiples of them will keep him happily munching and will be used for other day to day expenses that will occur. This is a great way to donate even if you can/want to only give $10, $20 or $30 "No $h*t Henny gets a lot of carrots. While at Peter's barn I saw the biggest bag of carrots I have seen in my (apparently sheltered) life. I mean seriously....just get a pick-up truck load.

|This is more like it....if it were larger|
Clearly I need to move to England. I need hay for $140.
Which also brings us to transport....
|aww-let's make sure Owie gets to go|
You can help Owen go see his favorite horse run Badders (serious awwww factor here folks) or pony up and get Henry there.
So the cost of transporting the humans and horses makes me less jealous of the hay thing.
On to my personal favorite....
Lodging for Peter
"with your help Peter will be well rested for his week at Badminton and yes he will be living in a double wide."Yes! A thousand time yes!!! I can't tell you exactly why this tickles my funny bone. As a trailer park liver for several years (I know you are NOT shocked by that little revelation) I am certainly no snob. But the thought of Peter in his doublewide....
All kidding aside this an expensive endeavor (even not accounting for lost income while away). I would really love to see Peter, his family and his horse live this dream. They are good people.
Please visit http://www.shop.runhennyrun.com and donate what you can (and if you can't I get that -please just keep the Atkins eventing family in your thoughts as they make this journey).
And if someone out there does sponsor Peter's lodging please make it contingent upon photographic evidence. Please.
