Boyd has Three Horses on the USEF High Performance Training Lists

The USEF Eventing High Performance Training Lists have been revised for the upcoming 2012 season and Boyd is thrilled to own half the A list, with Otis and Neville, and to be part of the B list with Ying Yang Yo.

I spoke with Boyd this morning and all of the upper-level horses are currently back in work, and Remington will be getting back to his roots when he joins the Cheshire Fox Hounds in Unionville, PA for their Thanksgiving Hunt this week. Eventing fans fear not, however: Remi and his talented stable buddy Cold Harbor will both be back in action with the listed horses to show the eventing world what they’ve got in 2012.

Regarding the training list, according to the USEF, “Athlete/Horse combinations will be invited to participate in training sessions this winter with U.S. Chef d’Equipe and Technical Advisor Capt. Mark Phillips. Preparation for and success at the 2012 Olympic Games were the Eventing Selectors and the High Performance Committee’s highest priorities in developing these lists.”
