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 the morning. In the wind and the rain, hearty event fans lined up at the Ariat booth and with Majyk Equipe at One Stop to grab a snap and autograph with Boyd (please check out all our photos and videos on Facebook and Instagram).

Upon the conclusion of dressage and the press conference, there was an interview with NBC and Donna Brothers (of Triple Crown color commentary fame). Then we were off to our annual Smartpak Course walk, where we were greeted by throngs of enthusiastic fans who joined us at the Head of the Lake. Boyd took us on a tour of several of the complexes, and we were very grateful to our young volunteer Mia – who willingly walked all the questions while Boyd commented on his plan of attack for tomorrow.

The rain today will make for perfect footing on course tomorrow, and certainly all the horses and riders will appreciate the cooler temps for XC day. Boyd and Thomas are going out on course at 1:40pm, and if you’re not here in Kentucky, you can catch all the action live streamed through the USEF Network and of course we will be keeping everyone up to date on the action via our Facebook and Instagram.

After XC we will also be visiting our friends at Purina Horse Feeds (booth # 6 top of sponsor’s village near Dubarry) before heading over the Stubben (booth # 13 in the main section of the Sponsor Village).  Please stay tuned for exact times!

Best of luck to all competitors! Thank you to all of our sponsors and Go #TeamThomas!
