Fair Hill May Horse Trials

It looks like we have perfect conditions for this weekend's Fair Hill Horse Trials. This is one of Fair Hill's lower key events of the season, so the courses should be friendly. This will be the final run before Bromont Three-Day event for a couple of the horses, and for a few of the others this is a great chance to get some experience. Some of these horses are for sale, so it’s also important to establish their competition record so we can get them sold. Unfortunately, I can’t make it to Read more...

Jersey Fresh International 2019

It was a gorgeous spring day at the Horse Park of New Jersey, and Boyd was busy riding four horses in stadium jumping and three around cross country at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event. There were a few ups and downs this weekend: one of the highlights was the relatively new horse, Luke 104 narrowly finishing second in the CCI3*-S after adding a couple seconds of time on cross country. Ray Price finished 5th in the CCI4*-S, while Barry was having a good round but ended up with a Technical Read more...

Off to a Good Start at 2019 Jersey Fresh International

Today was the first day of dressage at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event and all three horses entered in the ‘short’ format of the event did good dressage tests. Barry: He was the first of my group to go. He had been working really well in the lead up to the test and I decided to really go for it in the test. Barry was super. Unfortunately in the trot half pass he misunderstood my aid and cantered. His medium trots were sensational.  In the canter work, we unfortunately Read more...

After the 2019 LRK3DE: The Best is Still to Come with Tsetserleg

Looking back on this year’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, I’m honestly not sure we could have done much better with Thomas. Last year he felt like a green, inexperienced horse and this year he’s a seasoned campaigner. I’ve said it before, while I don’t know that he’s always the most talented horse in the field, there’s no question he tries the hardest of any horse I know. I think the dressage this year was a good test but I think this is one area we can still improve. I think Read more...
Boyd and Thomas had a stellar round at the 2019 Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian today. With no jumping and no time faults they moved up to second place overall on their dressage score of 27.9, less than a rail behind leader and  defending champion Oliver Townend on Cooley Masterclass with 25.3. At the press conference Boyd said of Christine Turner's Trakehner gelding, "He gave me a fantastic ride. I thought the course walked easier this year and I was surprised Read more...

Boyd and Tsetserleg Have Arrived in Kentucky for #LRK3DE 2019

I’ve arrived in at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington for this year’s LRK3DE, for the first time called a 5-star, which takes some getting used to saying as I’ve been riding around 4-stars for many years now. This year I ended up bringing Tsetserleg (Thomas), who’s in sizzling form; this time last year he was green at this level but now he’s a seasoned competitor. His training and preparation have been spot on and I’ve got him well prepared in all three phases, and I’m looking Read more...
