Windurra Dressage at GAIGs

Windurra Dressage is back from the GAIG Finals, and client Pam Murphy shared the following blog entry about the weekend: Besides the three dressage horses, Hannah Lu W, Reva (aka Rhea, owned by Christine Capano) and Bud (aka Dommelsch, my current ride while Rio recovers from his suspensory), we also took three of Boyd's top horses so they could spend some quality tune-up time with Silva. As usual it was ribbons galore for Silva: Hannah Lu W (owned with Sarah Reese) won the Championship PSG Read more...

Morven Park 2020

This weekend we are heading down to Morven Park Horse Trials in Virginia. This is always a great event that will definitely have a championship cross country course. We have an awesome group of horses heading south to compete. I am riding three of the older horses: Luke 140, Long Island T and Tsetserleg TSF. I decided to put Thomas in the Intermediate to give my body a rest between classes in the cross country. Mike will be riding the younger horses, Aria, Electra and Cat, in the Prelim as well Read more...

Statement from Boyd

First and foremost, I want to be absolutely clear that I am one hundred per cent for diversity and equality in equestrian sports. At our farm here at Windurra I employ people from all different countries, cultures and religions. I have enjoyed training and competing horses with people from all over the world. The issue of race has nothing to do with my problem with EventingNation.com. Being on the board of Plantation Field International, it is my opinion that EN handled their questioning of the Read more...

Windurra Eventing at 2020 Stable View Oktoberfest

Photo of Boyd and Fernhill Prezley at Bromont (Canada) in 2019 Boyd is still easing back into competing and will be riding two horses at the Stable View Oktoberfest Event this weekend. Because Stable View is the winter base for Boyd and Silva, it felt important to support their annual FEI competition. Stable View has worked hard to establish safety protocols during Covid-19 to keep participants safe and ensure that competitions continue for eventers, dressage and hunter/jumper competitors.

Weekend Wrap up

It was a beautiful weekend at Plantation Field International, even clouded by controversy. For me personally I was thrilled to be out competing again. I’ve had a few niggling injuries this year that have finally been fixed and it feels good to be back in action. I visited my physio this morning and I'm happy to report that everything is in good shape after the weekend. Windurra USA had a good showing this weekend. I chose to ride a couple seasoned campaigners in the three-star: both Cue Read more...

Windurra Eventing Saturday Update from Plantation Field International

It was a beautiful, crisp fall day at the Plantation Field International Three-Day Event Presented by Taylor Harris Insurance Services. As planned, Boyd had a steady canter around the CCI3*-S on both Long Island T, owned by the Long Island T Syndicate, and On Cue, owned by Christine Turner. While it's always exciting to take the early lead, the goal was for Boyd and the horses to get back in the groove and have a safe and careful weekend as Boyd has been rehabilitating after surgery to repair Read more...

Windurra Eventing Ride Times for Plantation Field

This weekend I am back in action at the Plantation Field International Three-Day Event. After 41 years I have decided to change my my approach and to take it slow this weekend. It has been eight weeks since my last surgery, and I plan to ride just two horses in the three-star. Long Island T (Ludwig) and On Cue should be the perfect duo to give me a nice, easy stroll around the beautiful cross-country course built by www.etbjump.com at Plantation Field. Mike has a rock star group of horses this Read more...

Windurra Dressage at the Summer Wind Down Show at Morven Park

Thanks to Pam Murphy for sharing this: With blue ribbons and high score awards for PSG and I1, Silva and Hannah Lu, Rosa Cha's daughter, both looked like superstars this weekend!
