It was a rough day in the sport of eventing, with horses lost at Southern Pines and Poplar Place. We all send our condolences to Michael Pollard, Arden Wildasin and everyone connected with Dekorum II and Mandar. For more information check out the coverage at EventingNation.com
Boyd also had some ups and downs today, with a fall with Last Monarch in the advanced division. Horse and rider are doing well - Boyd got checked out just to be sure and he will be back in the tack tomorrow, while "Stewie" is resting in his stall. In better news Cold Harbor leads the open intermediate and Summer Breeze W leads the Open Training C division, and with several more horses to ride Boyd still has his work cut out for him.
