Silva’s Friday Dressage Wrap Up from #LRK3DE2021

Silva finished up her Kentucky coaching gig by helping Boyd pilot both of his remaining CCI5*-L horses into the top ten at the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian. On Cue On Cue is probably the greenest one out of the five-star horses because she hasn’t done any of the big competitions yet. I thought she was awesome, I’ve never seen her this good!

Silva Martin’s Thursday Dressage Recap from LRK3DE 2021

Silva is in Kentucky coaching Boyd and she checked in to give a recap of his two rides today at the 2021 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Presented by Mars Equestrian: Luke 140 Boyd’s first ride today was Luke 140 in the CCI4*-S. First of all, the weather is very unlike April in Kentucky, it’s very cold, and for a fit horse that’s not ideal! All week Luke has looked fabulous, and he looked a million bucks in the warm-up, he’s a really quality horse. But once he was in the stadium, Read more...

Windurra Eventing Ride Times for Plantation Field

This weekend I am back in action at the Plantation Field International Three-Day Event. After 41 years I have decided to change my my approach and to take it slow this weekend.

Mike has a rock star group of horses this Read more...
