Remington Stands in 5th After First Day of Dressage!

The Rolex Kentucky 3 Day event got under way today with some sunshine on top of the horse park!  The first horse in dressage was Allison Springer on Arthur, and they did a sensational test and held the lead throughout the day on a score of 42.

After lunch Remington and Boyd had their test, warming up superbly, showing signs of brilliance from his last 4* test at Pau….but as they went down the tunnel to the test Boyd felt Remi such back a bit.  He felt that the stadium environment made him hesitate a bit, but he was reasonably happy with most of the work.

The low point of the test came from a course error by the pilot, when Boyd had a blank moment forgetting an 8 meter circle, which cost them 2 points.  All in all they finished in 5th place on a score of 49, which is in striking distance of the top contenders for the competition.  Tomorrow they have the day to prepare for cross country on Saturday at 11:10am.

It was a full day of work with the sponsors as well.  Directly after his dressage test, Boyd joined Allison Springer for the Smartpak course walk, then was whisked away by Land Rover & the USEF for a promotional photo shoot with Will Coleman and Sinead Halpin.  The life of a rock star, but Boyd’s main focus remains with Remington and this competition!

The photo albums have all been posted to Facebook or you can click on a link below.

Till tomorrow……..LT
