Silva’s Trip South: Ten Days in Aiken

The boys and I are just back from ten days in Aiken where we really enjoyed some time with Boyd, and I was able to compete in a couple of shows. We took our babysitter Susannah and her son Bobby, and I had three horses, so the truck was full and the trailer was nearly full for our journey south. It was fun to see Boyd, obviously since the boys and I hadn’t seen him for awhile! We got there Friday and I showed that Sunday in the Grand Prix at Stable View. Rosa was really good and it was fun, Read more...

Pine Top Farm Advanced Horse Trials This Weekend

It’s wet, cold and miserable in Aiken, but I am fired up to tackle the Pine Top Horse Trials this weekend. With bad weather all of this week, the event organizers have shifted the schedule around to try to let the footing dry out before we go cross country.  Obviously, if it looks a bit too wet and muddy, I may choose to save the horses for another day. I am very excited to see the line up of horses for this weekend. I think we have some of the best horses in the country out competing. I Read more...

Boyd’s 2020 Wellington Showcase Recap

Featured Video Play IconWe have arrived home well after a great week of training and competition in Wellington, Florida. To be honest, I am little disappointed with our result in the Wellington Showcase, as I really thought Ludwig was set up to be very competitive.  By saying that, there were a lot a positives to take home from the event and the week's training.   On Wednesday, Ludwig underwent the USEF Elite Squad vet check. This took a couple of hours, and consisted of X-rays, ultrasounds, flexion tests and trot-ups. Read more...

Mike Competing Windurra Horses at Pine Top

This weekend I am down in Wellington having a crack at the Wellington Showcase, so  I have left Big Mike in Aiken with the task of giving a number of the horses their first start for the year. Mike is under instructions to give them a nice gentle outing at their first event. There was a ton of rain today, so the course has been modified slightly, but the show will go on. Please keep an eye on the results on evententries.com. Read more...

Show Jumping at Bruce’s Field and On the Road to Florida

Featured Video Play IconA few of the upper level horses had a show jumping outing at Bruce's Field where Tsetserleg and On Cue competed in the 1.20 jumpers and Ludwig did the 1.30m "Mini Prix". This was a good opportunity some extra mileage in the show jumping arena, with a bit of atmosphere for good measure (and prize money!). We are also looking forward to the $50,000 Grand Prix Eventing Invitational at Bruce's Field on March 1st and 2nd. But first, we are en route to sunny Florida and ready to tackle this weekend's Read more...

Sporting Days February Horse Trials

On Saturday we plan to take a great group of horses to Sporting Days Horse Trials. This event is a nice, ‘no frills’ local horse trials that features a very straightforward cross country course. I usually would not enter my intermediate horses (Barry, Luke & Bonito) here, but I would love to get them through an easy run before I line them up to a bigger task at Pine Top 2 in a few weeks. For Prez, Lulu and Electra, this will be a great event to continue building confidence.  They are all Read more...

Windurra Event Horses Fancy Prancing in Aiken this Weekend

It’s time we see if all of our dressage training this month has paid off! Tomorrow, we plan to take a few of the horses out to the Bruce’s Field for the  2020 Dressage in the Park show. This is a USDF recognized show, so the eventers will really get to test their mettle against the dressage horses. A number of the horses we plan to take will be quite excited and pumped up for their first event for the year, and we will use this show to hopefully get them settled for the upcoming Read more...
