Alex Hua TianThe youngest ever eventer to compete at the Olympics at the age of 18 and “the finest horseman China has ever produced”, Old Etonian Alex Hua Tian was born in London to a British mother and a Chinese father. Cheshire based, he told the BBC “I feel very Chinese here in the British countryside” and that “at the same time, when I’m in China, I feel very British” in August 2014. These photographs of this friend of Jilly Cooper by John Stoddart capture this “one in a billion rider” just perfectly.
