After the 2019 LRK3DE: The Best is Still to Come with Tsetserleg

Looking back on this year’s Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, I’m honestly not sure we could have done much better with Thomas. Last year he felt like a green, inexperienced horse and this year he’s a seasoned campaigner. I’ve said it before, while I don’t know that he’s always the most talented horse in the field, there’s no question he tries the hardest of any horse I know. I think the dressage this year was a good test but I think this is one area we can still improve. I think Read more...

Tsetserleg Waltzes Into the Top 3 After Dressage!

This morning, when asking Silva about Boyd’s and Thomas’ preparation for this year’s test, she said, “I don’t want to jinx it, but we may have a top 3 finish.” Clearly Silva is clairvoyant…..or perhaps she and Boyd have been working pretty hard towards today’s score of a 27.9, which was good enough a press conference appearance as the scoring top American! Since Boyd’s dressage test was near the end of the day, we also had the opportunity to visit with a few of our sponsors in Read more...

2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event

The 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event is under way and Tsetserleg passed the first veterinary inspection with flying colors. We've got Amber at the computer and Lisa on the ground in Kentucky making sure that Boyd's fans and sponsors have lots of great content from this year's big event! Boyd has walked the cross country course (more than a few times) and is lined up for a few autograph signings with various sponsors in the trade fair. https://kentuckythreedayevent.com/sponsor-village-map/ Here's Read more...

Reflections on the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon

First and foremost, it’s an honor and privilege to represent the USA at an international championship; like every occasion, I can honestly say I’ve tried as hard as I possibly could to give my best at this year’s WEG. I believe the selectors picked the right five horses and riders, and you can overanalyze this event but at the end of the day, anything that could have gone wrong went wrong for Team USA. All five of us were in form and had good, sound horses that were performing well, but Read more...

Cross Country Day at WEG 2018: Not All to Plan but Team USA Still in the Running

  Heading out of the start box in 8th place individually, Boyd was hoping for a better result today at the WEG, but a run-out at fence 10B with Tsetserleg and the resulting time penalties knocked them down the leaderboard to 54th place individually. The US Eventing Association posted a video from the Mix Zone following cross country: https://www.facebook.com/USEventing/videos/434637113606810/ Our friends at EventingNation.com summed up the US Team situation: It was a day Read more...

WEG Tryon

US Eventing Horses Passed the Jog and Ready to Go

Tsetserleg and the rest of the US horses passed the trot up with flying colors today at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon. We will do dressage at 1:40pm tomorrow, the second to go of the US Team. Thomas is feeling great, so I anticipate a good test. The weather has been pretty warm and humid, so I’ve shortened his workouts a bit and ridden him more frequently instead of for longer rides but he’s in good nick and the rest of the team look great so I think we’re in for a good championship I Read more...

Read Boyd’s Latest “Road to the WEG” Column in The Chronicle of the Horse

We are counting down to the Opening Ceremonies and the US Eventing Team is ready to shine this weekend! Boyd has been sharing his preparations for the FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon via The Chronicle of the Horse magazine, and the latest installment is hot off the press: http://www.chronofhorse.com/article/road-to-the-weg-boyd-martin-and-tsetserleg-are-set-and-ready-to-rock-in-tryon Boyd and Thomas were also featured in the WEG coverage in The Asheville Citizen-Times newspaper: https://www.citizen-times.com/story/news/local/2018/09/06/boyd-martin-one-many-us-riders-expected-medal-world-equestrian-games/1190046002/ Read more...

Getting Settled in for WEG at Tryon International Equestrian Center

Team USA is getting settled in at the Tryon International Equestrian Center for the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games; there's a lot of excitement as well as disappointment as Marilyn Little's mare RF Scandalous came up a bit lame after our last gallop and has retired from the team. She's a horse that was capable of an individual gold medal so that's a big disappointment but Will Coleman is a four-star machine and a strong replacement in my opinion. Thomas has arrived in great shape and we are Read more...

Updates from Boyd: Eddie Rerouted to Pau, Thomas Ready for WEG, and Leo’s Coming Home

The last couple of months have been pretty hectic, with events all over North America every weekend and some of our top horses preparing for the biggest events in the world. I had got Steady Eddie all set to go to Burghley, and he had a great run around  Millbrook in his preparation, but unfortunately the Team USA selectors and management pulled me aside and advised against competing since it’s so close to the FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon in a couple weeks' time. Initially I was furious Read more...
