Boyd checks in following a couple of days in Pennsylvania:
The Sunday night after Pine Top I jumped on a flight straight up to PA not only to see my loving wife and two pet cats but also to inspect my two exciting young horses that Silva and Caitlin have been working with.
Ambassador’s Rose, known around the barn as Rose has improved considerably with her jumping and the dressage since we parted company a couple of months ago. Kristin and Andy Sparks bred Rose and she’s a new competition horse for me to ride.The mare is showing good signs of promise and she’ll make her debut at the Plantation Horse Trials next month at the novice level.
I also got on Steady Eddie for his first jumping school on American soil and he did not disappoint. Right from the first fence he gave me a great feel on top and he’s showing good signs of promise. I still think he’s probably a couple months off starting eventing because he hasn’t seen any cross-country style fences like banks or water in his life. He looks like he’s gained about 400 pounds since I last saw him in Australia. We’ve got him on Nutrena Legacy feed three times a day and he’s starting to shine and really look good.
