Neville Bardos Syndicate

At the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, Boyd Martin and Neville Bardos were the highest placed individual horse and rider combination representing the United States. It is not every day that a horse as talented and full of promise as Neville Bardos comes along and we would like to extend to you the opportunity to join Neville on his exciting journey to the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. Neville is currently ranked tenth in the world; by joining the Neville Bardos Syndicate you will play a vital role in the continued development of this talented horse’s abilities at the height of his competitive career.

A tough and talented individual, Neville Bardos was purchased off the racetrack as a youngster in Australia and quickly moved up the ranks of three-day eventing. In the US he has proved himself again and again, winning the 2008 Carimati Cup for highest placed foreign rider, in 2009 winning the Fair Hill International CCI3* and in 2010 earning a place on the US team at the World Equestrian Games.

Currently 11 years old, he will be in his prime at age 13 for the 2012 Olympic Games. Next year’s focus will be to improve his dressage and competing at one four-star event, either at Kentucky or Burghley.

As part of the US team at the WEG Neville Bardos has been fully vetted several times over by an FEI Veterinary Panel and is sound and in good health. Anyone is welcome to stop by the farm and meet Neville and watch either of us working with him.

Boyd's Next Four-Star Champion

Always up for a challenge, Boyd participated in the
USA vs. Canada Shetland pony races sponsored by PRO at the
Dansko Fair Hill International Festival in the Country this past weekend.
Their pre-race warm-up included putting this
little champ through her dressage paces.
Could this be the next Teddy?

New Horse from Bruce Davidson

I am the proud new rider of a very fancy looking 3-year-old gelding by Salute The Truth out of Eagle Lion's full sister! The gelding was purchased from a local breeder/Olympic & World champion, Bruce Davidson.

Being born at Chesterland Farm, his current name around the barn is 'Chester'. He is a perfect mix of 15/16 thoroughbred, 1/16 Irish Sport Horse. He is a beautiful mover, and should be a wonderful jumper considering his uncle, (Eagle Lion).

I plan to spend the next few months gently teaching Chester the basics. Standing proud at 16.3hh tall, he looks mature enough to start eventing early next year.

I would like to thank Bruce and Susie for giving me a great deal on such a promising looking horse. Below is a video of me having my test drive on him.
