Dressage Boot Camp for Boyd's Young Horses

While I am away getting drenched in the rain here in England, Silva and the girls have been making serious ground in the dressage with the younger horses.  I am very lucky to have an awesome team of riders that can improve the horses whilst I am gone.

A couple of the horses that look promising for the future are Anne Hennessey's New Cadet and The Trading Aces Syndicate's, Trading Aces.  Both horses are great movers that have a wonderful action.

New Cadet, or Caddy, is an off the track Thoroughbred that is a super jumper.  He has done a handful of prelims and the dressage has been the weaker phase in his weekends thus far.  Silva and Caitlin have been working on improving the connection from the leg to hand and his straightness.

Trading Aces, or Oscar, is a little further on in his career, just coming off his first three star at Bromont. His weakest part of the test is the changes, which used to resemble his jumping action: flamboyant.  As you can see, the bride is starting to give him an understanding of it all.

A big thank you must go to the whole team back at home!
