The Fork CIC*** Wrap-Up

Boyd Martin and Remington XXV

Boyd and Remington XXV topped a competitive field of 40 horses to win the Advanced division at The Fork CIC*** and Horse Trials in Norwood, NC over the weekend. Even more exciting is that his dad Ross was in the US on business and was able to travel to the event to cheer Boyd on – great for Ross to get to see Boyd up in the winner’s circle.

Congratulations to Remi’s owners Ron and Densey Juvonen, who have stuck with Remi through lots of ups and downs, and here’s looking forward to a repeat performance at Rolex Kentucky in a few weeks’ time! Show jumping has long been the toughest phase for Remi and it looks as if show jumping boot camp with Katie Prudent down in Florida this winter has paid off with perhaps the best show jumping round of Remi’s career so far.

Boyd Martin and Otis Barbotiere

In their first three-star competition together Boyd and Otis Barbotiere finished 9th out of 51 entries, with a solid dressage test, a clear but conservatively slow cross-country and a clean and sharp show jumping round. The future is looking bright for Boyd’s newest prospect, owned by the Otis Barbotiere Syndicate, LLC.

In the intermediate Boyd rode Dana and Manuel Diemer’s Cold Harbor to 3rd place. This horse is on a roll! And the Juvonens had even more to celebrate with their talented young mare Charla placing fourth in Preliminary-A.
