Windurra Horses Start the Season at Dressage at Bruce’s Field in Aiken

We spent this weekend at the new recognized dressage show at the relatively new facilities at Bruce’s Field in Aiken, SC. I was so impressed with Bruce’s Field, and also with the ladies who organized the show. I thought it was a huge success; they had a huge turnout and it was very well run. The footing there is also really good. I hope they do another show next year! This was the first one and it was excellent. Boyd and I both took horses out and he was also very impressed with the facility Read more...

Sponsor Love on Valentine’s Day

  Equestrian sport relies on partnerships: the bond between horse and rider; between student and coach; between a horse's owner(s) and rider; and, in the case of many professional riders, the partnership with sponsors.

Reflections on the 2017 $100,000 Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase

This year was once again an epic Wellington Showcase event. This is one of my favorite events of the year because it’s unique and a wonderful destination. I had this event dialed in from the beginning of the year and wanted to really well there. This year’s Showcase was probably the hardest to win: the field was very high quality, we had a lot more big-name riders with a high-end group of advanced horses. I took Craig and Gloria’s Welcome Shadow who’s now somewhat seasoned at the 4-star Read more...
