Happy New Year

The past year has been full of positive change for all of us at Windurra, especially as we welcomed our son, Nox Christoph Martin, in September! We are thoroughly enjoying life as new parents.

Silva made a successful return to the Florida show scene with Rosa Cha W a year after her head injury. Silva rode through much of her pregnancy and is already back in the saddle and looking forward to a return to the show ring in 2016. Naturally because of her pregnancy Silva had a low key summer and fall, but all the horses are in great form thanks to the girls working in her barn.

Boyd had an outstanding competitive year, with more than 180 starts including multiple wins and placings to finish the year in 3rd place overall on the US Eventing Association Leaderboard, and a current ranking of 10th on the FEI World Rankings.

A few highlights include bringing home Team Gold for the USA from the Pan American Games in Toronto, four horses finishing in the top 15 at the Fair Hill International FHI CCI 3* in October, placing 7th on Master Frisky and 25th on Crackerjack at Rolex Kentucky, and 3rd on Pancho Villa at the Jersey Fresh International CCI 3*.  Oscar’s win at the Wellington Eventing Showcase was also a lot of fun, and Boyd is looking forward to returning to Wellington in February to defend his title.

We have enjoyed the unusually warm winter weather in Pennsylvania and the opportunity to get the young horses out in the hunt field.  Some of the upper level horses recently got back to work after a hard-earned rest. We will pack up and head south to Aiken on the first of the year.

We also enjoyed spending time with family over the holidays, and hope that all of you have had a happy holiday season too. We wish you all the best in 2016!
