Boyd and Silva Martin , both internationally accomplished riders, came to the United States in early 2007 to further pursue their careers at Phillip & Evie Dutton’s True Prospect Farm. Boyd, currently standing third overall in points on the USEF’s Leaderboard, has joined on as Phillip’s assistant trainer. Silva, a Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer, or “Bereiter”, is running a successful training business at the barn as well. Both can be seen at the top competitions throughout the United States .It has been a fabulous experience working with Boyd and Silva. New to this country, they are already making their mark on the riding community. They are well accomplished, hard working & committed to their horses. I have first hand had the opportunity to take a lesson with both of them. My dressage leaves much to be desired (how long do you want my stirrups?!), and my x-country jumping is far from polished……but they were both patient, encouraging and fun. I can’t wait to get on board for their clinics. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to work with them & think they are both going to make a huge imprint on the equestrian world!
I want to extend my thanks to the other individuals, also top professionals within the equestrian community, who have been so helpful on this project. Their photography, ad copy, and technical knowledge are the reason this project came together so successfully. Many thanks to Amber Heintzberger, Paul Ciccone, Mike McNally, Emily Daily, Sue Stickle, the horse owners, working students, Bit of Britain and Devoucoux Saddles for all of your help and support.I hope that you enjoy the site & spread the word about Boyd and Silva’s flourishing business. Please peruse the site and inform all of your friends and associates about their sales horses, clinics and competition schedules. You will become as big a fan as I am.
