Another Winning Weekend at Dressage at Stable View

Hannah Lu, owned by Sarah Reese and Joan White, was great this weekend in the dressage show at Stable View. I just kind of changed the way I ride her, warming up with a light seat and keeping things a little loose and that works really well for her, since she tends to be a bit of a tight horse. She was really good, she placed 2nd to Shawna Harding in the PSG with 69% and won the I-1 on Sunday with 68% which was really good for her. Electric, owned by George and Julia Strawbridge and Nancy Read more...

Videos from Boyd’s 2018 Thoroughbred Retraining Clinics in Japan

Teaching in Japan with Godolphin Lifetime Care Thanks to Yasuko, who works for Godolphin and helped coordinate last year's Thoroughbred retraining clinics in Japan, for sharing these videos. These clinics are always a great experience as I really enjoy sharing my knowledge about retraining Thoroughbreds and the Japanese students have proven attentive and eager to learn. They have some really top class horses in Japan, and it's hard to beat the scenery when you're teaching in the shadow of Read more...

Back in the Show Ring with Rosa Cha W

Featured Video Play Icon We had good weekend getting back in the show ring here in Aiken. It was so fun to ride Rosa down the center line again - I missed her so much! In typical Rosa style she covered for my rusty mistakes, and I know we have a lot of work to do, but it is so great to have her back! And bonus: we won the Grand Prix. Rosa's daughter Hannah Lu does not like waiting. When her quarter is up, it’s up! Unfortunately in the PSG the show was running 20 minutes behind and she did not appreciate that. We still Read more...

Windurra Eventers Learn Galloping Technique from Jump Jockey Mark Beecher

Winters spent down at Stable View Farm in Aiken are always a good change of pace. One of the best changes is we are around a number of riders from different sports here at Stable View. Over the years I’ve become good friends with Irish timber champion Mark Beecher, who won the Maryland Hunt Cup. Mark’s from a very horsey family: his older brother Paul won the Hickstead Derby in England and his father is a well-known breeder who produces the Loughnatousa horses in Ireland. We’re very Read more...

Rosa Cha W to Return to Grand Prix Competition

Featured Video Play Icon At the end of 2017, just before Dressage at Devon, my Grand Prix mare Rosa Cha W foundered as a result of contracting Potomac Horse Fever. Rosa had been vaccinated against the disease, and the founder diagnosis was devastating. We thought that she might never compete again. We bred Rosa, who is now 13 years old, in Australia. She is an Oldenburg by Heath Ryan’s stallion Regardez Moi, out of Jasmine W (by Richmeed Medallion), and she is like part of our family. Rosa took me to my first Nations Read more...
