Boyd is riding four horses at the 2015 Jersey Fresh International Three Day Event: Gloria Callen’s Welcome Shadow is in the CCI2*, The Pancho Villa Syndicate’s Pancho Villa in the CCI3*, George and Gretchen Wintersteen and Pierre Colin and Denise Lahey’s Steady Eddie in the CIC3* and Denish Lahey and Pierre Colin’s SBF Cortez in the CIC2*.

Boyd said, “Welcome Shadow wasn’t too bad this morning; it was the best trot work I’ve had out of her but she’s still a bit green in the bridle. She swapped leads on both canters which lost some points. I think after another six months of training she’ll be unbelievable.”

Silva came up this afternoon to coach Boyd on Pancho and commented, “Pancho Villa was great today and Boyd rode a really good test. Pancho could have been a little bit steadier in the test, and in the last halt he didn’t halt perfectly and stepped back so that lost a few points, but overall it was a very accurate test. He scored 45 and he’s in 3rd place right now. Tomorrow he’s riding Cortez and Eddie. I think they’re both kind of green horses and will take a bit of riding, but Boyd’s the one to do it. They both looked great in training, so hopefully it will go well tomorrow.”

After checking out the cross-country, Boyd said, “The course looks good, with a new track. The ground’s a little bit hard because they haven’t had much rain, but I think I’ve got four horses that are in good shape and I plan to give them all a good run.”
