Eventing Nation summed it up perfectly, noting that "Boyd got a huge cheer from the crowd and galloped around after he finished his great ride--Remington can do better than 9th, but it's the horse's second straight top-10 finish in a 4* after Pau last year".......an accomplishment to be noted! With other riders in the top 10 laying down some brilliant rounds, there really wasn't much of an opportunity for Boyd and Remi to move up the ranks.....but he has to be ecstatic with the consistent improvement in Remi's stadium results. This horse has such heart and continues to show continual improvement and an unbelievable willingness to please!!
