Portrait of Neville Bardos....Wind Sucking

Well folks, I finally received the main prize for winning the Fair Hill CCI*** last fall: Susan Sponenberg painted this fine portrait for me, of Neville Bardos at his best: wind sucking on a post! When I talked to Susan she said that it was important to show Neville's true colors, and my strongest impression of this horse is of him gnawing away. I'll hang this one over the fireplace!

Rock On Rose Featured on Official Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event Website

Photo of Boyd riding Rock on Rose: Kat Netzler for The Chronicle of the Horse

Eventing legend Bruce Davidson owns Rock On Rose, one of three horses that Boyd is preparing for the Rolex Kentucky three-day event. Davidson is profiled on the website, and "Lusty", as the mare is known at home, is featured in the latest installment. Be sure to check out the official website for this and more information about the only four-star event in the United States, coming up in April at the Kentucky Horse Park. Don't forget that the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games will also take place this year and team selectors will be busy during Rolex figuring out who to pick for their teams!
