Stony Brook Farm’s Contestor Tops 2019 Devon Arena Eventing!

What an evening at the 2019 Devon Arena Eventing, with a big win for Contestor and his breeders, Denise Lahey and Pierre Colin from Stony Brook Farm, in New Hampshire!   Cortez's win in the 2019 Devon Arena Eventing class was so gratifying for Boyd, as these owners have been long time supporters and are truly dedicated to this horse's career. We are also grateful that the Devon Horse Show continues to pull together the sponsorship support to host these sort of spectator friendly events.  Read more...

Fair Hill May Horse Trials

It looks like we have perfect conditions for this weekend's Fair Hill Horse Trials. This is one of Fair Hill's lower key events of the season, so the courses should be friendly. This will be the final run before Bromont Three-Day event for a couple of the horses, and for a few of the others this is a great chance to get some experience. Some of these horses are for sale, so it’s also important to establish their competition record so we can get them sold. Unfortunately, I can’t make it to Read more...

Jersey Fresh International 2019

It was a gorgeous spring day at the Horse Park of New Jersey, and Boyd was busy riding four horses in stadium jumping and three around cross country at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event. There were a few ups and downs this weekend: one of the highlights was the relatively new horse, Luke 104 narrowly finishing second in the CCI3*-S after adding a couple seconds of time on cross country. Ray Price finished 5th in the CCI4*-S, while Barry was having a good round but ended up with a Technical Read more...

Off to a Good Start at 2019 Jersey Fresh International

Today was the first day of dressage at the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event and all three horses entered in the ‘short’ format of the event did good dressage tests. Barry: He was the first of my group to go. He had been working really well in the lead up to the test and I decided to really go for it in the test. Barry was super. Unfortunately in the trot half pass he misunderstood my aid and cantered. His medium trots were sensational.  In the canter work, we unfortunately Read more...

Preview of Windurra Horses at 2019 Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event

This week is the Jersey Fresh International Three-Day Event at the Horse Park of New Jersey in Allentown. I have brought up a group of rock star upper level horses to contest this event.

Hylofit Instrumental in Upping Windurra’s Fitness Game!

There's been quite a bit of buzz recently within the equestrian community regarding an emerging fitness technology company called Hylofit.  As with all of our sponsorship relationships at Windurra USA, we're very careful to test out products to ensure that we can stand behind that company and that their products bring value to our horses and training program.  With that in mind, we wanted to share the backstory of how Boyd and Silva came to be introduced to this Hylofit.

After the 2019 LRK3DE: The Best is Still to Come with Tsetserleg

Looking back on this year’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, I’m honestly not sure we could have done much better with Thomas. Last year he felt like a green, inexperienced horse and this year he’s a seasoned campaigner. I’ve said it before, while I don’t know that he’s always the most talented horse in the field, there’s no question he tries the hardest of any horse I know. I think the dressage this year was a good test but I think this is one area we can still improve. I think Read more...
