Successful Weekend for Team Windurra!

First off, congratulations to Boyd and Luke 140 on winning the Jersey Fresh CCI4*-L, and huge congratulations to the Luke Syndicate, who support this phenomenal horse. He is a very exciting horse with a big future ahead of him, and clearly has a good foundation due to his first-class dressage training! The dressage horses also did great this weekend at the dressage show at Morven Park in Virginia. Pam Murphy knocked it out of the Park with her two horses Rosa and Rio. Rio won fourth Read more...

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! She’s a very good mover, so that helps, and she was very focused and kept her cool. She only had a couple Read more...

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 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...

Silva Based at True Prospect Farm for Winter

Silva likes to joke that she is moving south for the winter - about three miles south, to be exact. With Nox in school five days a week now, it is more practical to keep the dressage horses home in Pennsylvania, and with icy winter weather in the forecast, the indoor arena at Phillip and Evie Dutton's True Prospect Farm makes it the ideal winter base. "The horses traveled really well on the big trip south," joked Silva as she longed a frisky Rosa Cha W. "They're all settled in and happy as 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...

Windurra Eventers at Dressage at Bruce’s Field

This weekend Mike and I took a few of the event horses over to Bruce's Field, here in Aiken, for the dressage show. It was fun trying to mix it up with the fancy dressage horses and it was an especially good experience for the Kyra and Cortez, who will be competing in the LiftMaster Eventing Grand Prix at Bruce's Field in a couple of weeks. Thanks to Silva’s owner Joan Fenton-White, who took photos of some of the horses. Results can be found at Foxvillage.com (links below) RESULTS BOYD RESULTS Read more...

Another Winning Weekend at Dressage at Stable View

Hannah Lu, owned by Sarah Reese and Joan White, was great this weekend in the dressage show at Stable View. I just kind of changed the way I ride her, warming up with a light seat and keeping things a little loose and that works really well for her, since she tends to be a bit of a tight horse. She was really good, she placed 2nd to Shawna Harding in the PSG with 69% and won the I-1 on Sunday with 68% which was really good for her. Electric, owned by George and Julia Strawbridge and Nancy Read more...
