Boyd Martin: Jersey Fresh Dressage Recap

Photo: Amber Heintzberger It’s been two grueling days of dressage at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day event. All of the horses put in very good tests: Luke and Ludwig were both awesome in the dressage. Monty, Prez and Donald were also very good on the flat. With these three younger horses, I didn’t quite nail the tests I hoped for and made a couple of frustrating mistakes. We are still in good placing with them, but all three of these horses are capable of dressage tests in the Read more...

Boyd Martin and On Cue Claim 2021 USEF National CCI5*-L Championship

  With just one of his four entries still in the running and the top placing in his sights,the pressure was on Boyd to pilot On Cue around clear today at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. But a single time fault would knock them out of second place, so Boyd also had to go for the time. Taking the risk of the inside line to the triple combination brought a rail down and cost him a top-three placing, but Boyd and On Cue still finished fourth overall and claimed the USEF National Read more...

Silva finished up her Kentucky coaching gig by helping Boyd pilot both of his remaining CCI5*-L horses into the top ten at the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian.

Silva is in Kentucky coaching Boyd and she checked in to give a recap of his two rides today at the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian: Luke 140 Boyd’s first ride today was Luke 140 in the CCI4*-S. First of all, the weather is very unlike April in Kentucky, it’s very cold, and for a fit horse that’s not ideal!
