Boyd and Silva have packed up the horses, trucks and trailers and tricycles for the drive home to Pennsylvania. Here's Boyd's update from the eventing side of things: With the Carolina International this week we are slowly starting our migration north.

Red Hills 2019 Wrapup

I'm slowly building up the upper-level horses for their spring goals: some of the horses are heading to Kentucky, Jersey Fresh and on to Bromont, and we used Red Hills in Tallahassee, Florida as one of their preparation events to get them humming along. KYRA - 1st, ADVANCED Christine Turner's feisty, redheaded mare was absolutely brilliant this weekend; she's had a busy schedule with Bruce's Field last weekend and to come out and blitz the competition this weekend was a satisfying victory.

Splendid Day for Young Horses at Sporting Days Farm March Horse Trials 2019

We had a great day with the young horses at the Sporting Days Farm March Horse Trials. It's a great local event with a nice, friendly course to introduce the horses to the next level. They all jumped clear and had good rounds, and finished with good results. All four horses were finished with all three phases by early afternoon, and after a rainy start to the weekend it was a pleasure to have sun shining. Silva and I took the kids to the zoo for the afternoon to enjoy some family time after a busy Read more...

Eventing Grand Prix in Aiken

I took Ray Price, Kyra and Tsetserleg out to the Liftmaster Eventing Grand Prix at Bruce's Field in Aiken, SC yesterday. This is a ‘showcase’ event that had some of the best horses in the country competing. My plan was to do the dressage and jumping on Ray Price  as a bit of exposure to top level competition and atmosphere and he did very, very well. He is still a little too green to win against this caliber of competition, but we are not far off. We were placed 10th Read more...
