Nip Tuck Retirement

Hester and Nip Tuck retired from competition in 2019. They continue to be active in the dressage world, competing in lower-level competitions and giving clinics.

In an interview with The Horse Magazine, Hester said of Nip Tuck:

"He's one of my most favorite horses I've ever ridden in my life, and I really look forward to riding him all the time. I just love the generosity of the horse… He's got a long back, his hind legs were naturally always out, he didn't really have a walk because he was so tight, he didn't really have a canter because he was so tense and always trying to run off – and his trot had to be developed. But he's just a really, really special horse."
