CrackerjackFHI2014Crackerjack is a purpose bred event horse who was bred, trained and produced by the late Colin Davidson. Colin put years of hard work and passion creating this wonderful young horse who is for the rider looking to go all the way!!

After Colin’s passing, we toyed with the thought of selling Crackerjack, but ultimately he has remained in our barn and has become one of my top level horses.  Throughout his career he has had several wins and top placings, and in 2014 he has continued that trend at the Advanced level, qualifying for the 2015 Rolex Kentucky 4*.   He had an impressive first run at Rolex, where he had a few uncharacteristic rails in stadium but still  finished an impressive 25th!

Since then Crackers has continued to impress, with multiple top placings at the Advanced, 3 and 4* level including a 2nd place finish at Plantation CIC 3* and a 7th place finish at the 2017 Rolex Ky 3 Day event!

After a brilliant Rolex, Boyd and Crackers headed to Pau, France.  They were on their way to one of the most brilliant XC rounds of their career when Crackers took a tragic step.  Due to the severity of the break, Lucy and Boyd made the heartbreaking decision to put Crackers down.  It was probably the low point of Boyd’s competitive career and the entire team at Windurra USA is heartbroken for this loss.
