Remington Delivers!

I am very proud to say that the 'Hanoverian Hurricane' stepped up and produced another fantastic dressage test today.  Mike Barisone warmed me up to perfection this afternoon at Barbury international CIC *** and  Remi went in the ring and put forth a great test that was nearly as good as his performance at Bromont.

He is placed 3rd behind Andrew Nicholson in 1st, and Jocko, 'the bricky from Campbelltown (link)' Paget in 2nd.  Remi is on a score of 43 in a red hot field of many Olympic contenders.  It was great to have Ron and Densey here cheering him on at one of his final competitions in a sensational career that has taken him to competitions in seven different countries.

Tomorrow is another day with the jumping.  The show jumping course will be tough, with a course design that is built over undulating ground.  I believe all three of my horses should jump clear if I ride them well.




  1. Congratulations!

  2. So does this mean Remi's going to retire soon? Congratulations and good luck for the rest of the weekend!

  3. Awesome job--I do hope that does not mean Remi is retiring--really enjoy watching him go--Such a nice horse!

  4. Remi has been to more countries than I have, LOL...I need to get out more ;)

  5. Thanks so much for the updates. Wish you the best of luck.

  6. Good luck Boyd! You're an inspiration. I love Oscar!!
