Plantation Field to Give Three Cheers to Boyd, Neville Bardos, and the Burghley and Blenheim Riders
Unionville, PA - September 12, 2011 - Neville Bardos was the last horse rescued from the burning building, due to the heroic efforts of Boyd Martin and Phillip Dutton. He has made a remarkable recovery, astonishing all those who have cared for him, including his vets. The pair have recently returned home from England where they finished 7th at the Burghley CCI****, traditionally thought of as the largest and most grueling three-day event in the world.
The planned public tribute is in appreciation of the tremendous support Boyd, Ryan Wood, Caitlin Silliman, Lillian Heard and Abbie Golden received from Chester County and the eventing community at large.
In addition, Plantation Field plans to acknowledge the achievements of the riders who competed at the Burghley CCI**** and the Blenheim CCI*** in Great Britain. Riders Sinead Halpin, Philip Dutton, Colleen Rutledge and Michael Pollard will be at Plantation Field International competing other horses this week.
On Sunday, September 18th, Plantation Field International CIC plans to hold a tribute to Neville Bardos and Boyd Martin and a moment of silence in honor for the all the wonderful horses that were lost in the May barn fire at True Prospect Farm.
