Windurra Eventers Migrating North

The Windurra Eventing crew is back home in Pennsylvania and happy to dig in to work here on the farm. In hindsight we were very lucky that we decided to enter so many horses at the Pine Top Spring Horse Trials in Georgia last weekend. Pine Top is one of my favorite events, it’s got a beautiful cross country course: good footing, open, galloping courses and a well-designed track. Between Mike, me and a large portion of our staff we ran most of  the horses our barn. A few of the mature horses Read more...

Silva’s Trip South: Ten Days in Aiken

The boys and I are just back from ten days in Aiken where we really enjoyed some time with Boyd, and I was able to compete in a couple of shows. We took our babysitter Susannah and her son Bobby, and I had three horses, so the truck was full and the trailer was nearly full for our journey south. It was fun to see Boyd, obviously since the boys and I hadn’t seen him for awhile! We got there Friday and I showed that Sunday in the Grand Prix at Stable View. Rosa was really good and it was fun, Read more...

Boyd in Physical Therapy After Surgery

Two weeks ago, after I'd been hobbling around like a 90-year-old man, my doctors finally figured out that I had a torn adductor muscle in my left leg. It had completely torn away from the bone, and above that was a partial tear, and there was another tear on the right leg. Dr. Meyers in Philadelphia cut me open and stitched me back together again. On the bright side it’s the perfect time of year for me to be recovering and I’ve only missed a couple of events. Each day I go in for two hours Read more...

XC and Gallop Track Open Till Dec 1st!

Today is cold and blustery - but the forecast for the next several weeks is favorable, and the footing on the XC course is in tip top shape!  Therefor, Boyd has decided to keep the course open throughout the month of November, so make plans to keep your horses in training before you head south (or hunker down in an indoor for the winter). In December we'll be paying attention to repairs on our jumps, and our good friend Jamie Hicks will be back to aerate and spread the mushroom soil so the Read more...

Luke 140 Schooling Flying Changes

https://youtu.be/ZcDesUg9TpI I am fortunate that my wife Silva is willing to spend time schooling the event horses and fine tuning their dressage skills. At the moment Silva is working with Luke 140, a horse we syndicated earlier this year. Silva’s main goal has been teaching Luke the flying changes. Next year Luke will need to do flying changes in his dressage tests at the 4-Star level. When we purchased him earlier this year, he had not been taught them yet, but sometimes this is better because Read more...

Boyd Martin Joins Forces with Bemer!

Keeping all the horses in top form is always the priority and Windurra USA.  Boyd, Steph and the team work very hard to keep the competitive horses in excellent physical shape, and much of their focus goes into managing their pre-performance comfort and post training recovery.  That's where Bemer comes into play. For the horses, the Bemer Blanket is utilized daily by Steph and the team while the horses stand on the cross ties waiting to be tacked up, or post dressage or jump school.  Here's Read more...
