Cross Country Schooling with Ian Stark

Making the WEG Team is Just the Beginning

First and foremost I would like to say how proud and honored I am to have been selected to represent the USA at this year’s World Equestrian Games with Christine Turner's Tsetserleg. In my eight years representing the USA, this was by far the hardest team to get on. Compared to other countries America has a lot of depth, and we have a strong contingent waiting to step up if a team horse is sidelined. In my opinion the selectors had a tough job this year choosing from such a vast pool of talent. Chris Read more...

New Gallop Open and Shamwari Retires

On Sunday afternoon we invited about 150 of our closest friends to the farm for two main reasons: firstly we opened our brand new, mile-long Attwood Equestrian Surfaces Gallop Track, a new amenity for our farm in Pennsylvania. The footing consists of coated sand with geo-textile fibers, imported from Germany. We’re opening the track to the public so everyone can gallop no matter how hard and dry the ground is.

Shamwari Withdrawn from Luhmuehlen CCI4*

Featured Video Play Icon After taking back the lead yesterday with a stellar cross country round at Luhmuehlen CCI4* in Germany, Boyd has made the tough decision to withdraw Shamwari from the competition this morning: "Unfortunately I have decided to withdraw Shamwari from today’s showjumping. After I finished the cross country yesterday he looked sore in his hind leg, and a number of the top vets here at the competition examined him and agreed that he has strained his hind tendon, and it would not be right to try Read more...

Silva Recaps Boyd and Shamwari’s Dressage at Luhmuehlen

Featured Video Play Iconhttps://youtu.be/dql8uI-cShE Because Boyd has ridden Shamwari for so many years now they really have a partnership, and a test like this really shows what a great partnership looks like. I think Erik duVander is a very helpful addition to Boyd's team; I help Boyd a lot but it's great to hear it from a new voice and Erik's changed things up a bit, like taking him for a little canter the morning of dressage. Shammie was very rideable in the ring today and I think that's a reflection of the work Read more...
