Windurra Eventers On the Road to Maryland Horse Trials

The final outing for the Pan Am horses, the Maryland Horse Trials starts today. We’ve been lucky with the weather as there have been numerous thunderstorms that have created rain during this hot time of the year. Friday and Saturday I have chosen to ride Thomas (Tsetserleg), Bonito and Santos. All three of these horses seem to be in great condition coming into this event. Even though the footing should be decent, the course can be a little twisty and I will most likely not go too quick, in an effort Read more...

Electric Sold!

I am pleased to announce that I have sold Electric to Kelly Gilbertson. I have always loved this horse, we bought him initially because we thought he’d be my new FEI horse, but with two kids to take care of and a lot of competition horses in my barn now, I knew I would have to let someone go. He’s got such a good temperament and is easy to ride, so I thought he’d be a good one to sell since he will make a nice schoolmaster. I’ve known Kelly and her mom Jacqui for a long time, Jacqui Read more...

Home from Bromont 2019

We finally arrived home at 4am this morning from an epic Bromont three-day event in Quebec, Canada. For me this is, alongside Fair Hill, the very best three-day event in North America. Bromont has it all: beautiful weather, a sensational venue and a serious, tough competition. In all my years of going to Bromont – I think it’s ten now – I’ve won the lower classes a few time, but I’d never managed to win the CCI4*-L, and that was a big goal of mine at the beginning of this year. In Read more...

Windurra Eventing Ready For Action at Bromont 2019

We’ve arrived safe and sound at one of my favorite events of the year, the Mars Bromont Three-Day Event in Quebec, Canada. This is always an epic event due to the fact it’s one of the toughest cross country challenges in North America, and this year is no exception. It looks like a real test for all levels and it should be an exciting competition. This weekend I’m riding five top-class horses and they’re all in sizzling form: CCI4*-L Ray Price, owned by the Ray Price Syndicate, Read more...

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...

Videos from 2019 Jersey Fresh International

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...
