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...

The August 2020 Update: It Takes A Village at Windurra USA

Featured Video Play IconI’ve obviously had a frustrating year this year, with a couple of surgeries on my hips and groin muscle. My body has had years and years of wear and tear and I had to get a bit of repair work: I had scar tissue that had calcified and turned into bone that they had to extract, and while they had me opened up they shaved off some bone spurs as well. Basically it’s been like a sharp sword tearing the muscle for the past five years and I just kept working through the pain. I have been doing consistent Read more...

Great Meadow International

This coming weekend is a big one for Eventing: with so many cancellations due to Covid-19, The Great Meadow International has turned into one of the premier events for the year.  Some of the best horses around are going to be competing this weekend. I have had to step back from riding after overdoing it, but I had a good visit with the doctor yesterday.  He said my leg looks great, and I am getting very close getting back in the saddle. I feel no pain and I am working hard at physical therapy Read more...

Otis Barbotiere to Semi-Retire at Windurra USA

Featured Video Play IconEarlier this year, Tricia Boone called me and said that my 2012 Olympic partner Otis Barbotiere wasn’t doing too much at his new home in Kentucky.  He had a great career in the jumpers with both Catie and Ali Boone, but was ready for retirement. Tricia said that she was looking for a home for the old boy, and I jumped at the chance to take him back and give him a home at Windurra. When he arrived at the farm, I must say that he looked amazing. The Boone family had Otis in magnificent condition. Read more...

Waredaca

With all the rain in the last weeks the footing will be in good shape and this should be a good run for these horses.
