Two in the Top Three after Cross Country at Galway Downs CCI4*-L

It was a stellar day of cross country for Boyd and his two horses at the Galway Downs CCI4*-L, with both horses jumping clean and finishing just under the time allowed. Luke 140 maintains the lead, and Long Island T moved up to 3rd place heading into tomorrow's show jumping phase. Boyd reports: My first horse of the day, Long Island T was absolutely brilliant today in the cross country. Obviously yesterday in the dressage was frustrating where anything that could have gone wrong went wrong. But Read more...

Luke 140 Leads After Dressage at Galway Downs CCI4*-L

Yesterday was the first phase of the Galway Downs CCI4*-L in Temecula, California where Boyd is competing Luke 140 and Long Island T, both owned by Syndicates, in the National Championship. The event kicked off with dressage yesterday, and Boyd had a mixed day in the sandbox with his two horses: [Video of Luke 140] [Video of Long Island T] Ludwig has been absolutely spot on all week in his training. He warmed up for the test beautifully yesterday.  Every movement he did in training was Read more...

Boyd’s Post Card to Mike from Sunny California

Whilst I am getting a sun tan under a palm tree in California, Mike will be in the drizzly cold at Virginia Horse Trials this weekend.  For most of these horses, this will be the grand finale to the end of their competition season.  Mike is dialed in for this one, arriving at the show a day early to get the horses settled in. We have three smart young horses in the 5 -year-old championships.  Prinz, Fair and Magic have all developed well this year. They are still youngsters, but they are Read more...

Boyd’s Chatt Hills 2020 Recap

What I thought was my biggest fear of hard ground at Chatt Hills couldn’t have been further from the truth! Yesterday afternoon a massive monsoon hit Atlanta, flooding the event. Sadly with the flooding at the event, the organizers cancelled the cross country. It was very frustrating, but it was impossible to run this phase. With good weather on Saturday, Chris Turner's Tsetserleg TSF put in a stellar test and scored 24.3 to stand second behind Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous on a 22 in the Read more...

Top Windurra Event Horses Headed to Chatt Hills 2020

This weekend is a busy one down in North Georgia. I have chosen to take a top group of horses to compete at Chattahoochee Hills. This is an event that I have not competed at in 10 years. The last time I was there was the final run on Neville before the 2010 WEG!  I have mainly picked this event due to the timing of it.  It is perfectly placed three weeks before the 4-Star Long event at Tryon. This should be a great prep run to sharpen the horses up before the big one at the end of the year. All Read more...

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.
