Good Luck USA at Burghley!

Congrats to the American contingent doing so well at  Burghley 2012, especially Sinead and Alison who are standing first and second after dressage. Wishing everyone who is having a crack at the big Burghley cross-country tomorrow all the best! Alison, Will, Erin, Sinead, Kristy and Kate: Kick on and Hold on!
-Boyd and Silva


  1. Im so proud of Kate Hicks! My husband and I took her to compete in her first recognized event (Woodside) for her 13th birthday!
    So exciting to see her goals and hard work over the years come to fruition! Go Kate!

  2. Sinead ROCKS!!!!

    They say Sinead had the XC of her life; but I think that it is the way she always does it, pouring her whole being into it. She has so much class. Likewise Alison (and so called - by the Captain- "spooky" Arthur.)

    After the avalanche of criticism when Boyd spoke up his mind after the WEG, I can understand why he would not openly criticize Mark Phillips and the USA selectors, but somebody of importance should do it. Otherwise, we will be looking at more of the same USA disasters at international eventing competitions.
