We've been working with Paul Tapner over the past several months on the initial launch of his new (and fabulous) HorseHub App.  

"HorseHub is the ultimate equestrian App for horse lovers everywhere providing access to a variety of content on all manner of topics to help or entertain you as part of your equestrian life.

You’ll find training material from some of the world’s most authoritative riders and trainers, so if you’re looking for that little extra help with your BE dressage test, assistance with getting your horse over those ditches, or you’re feeling a bit nervous before entering the arena, you’ll find professional help at your fingertips in the HorseHub iPhone & iPad App.
On top of all this you’ll find some fun and entertaining content from some of the best authors from around the horse world."

Here is the DIRECT LINK to Boyd's page on the app, where you can download our videos.  The cost is a whopping .4 cents more than on our Video page, but you can download this amazing app right to your iPad or iPhone.  

Just think, you could be out schooling & want to access Boyd's suggestions on XC Ride-Ability & you can pull out your phone to check the video!  What more could you ask for.........Top training advice from Boyd right at your finger tips!

Fabulous End to Dressage at Devon

Duvent Struts His Stuff

 Yesterday was another great day to end an altogether wonderful week at Dressage at Devon. I rode Duvent in the morning in 4th level and he was much calmer, having been there all week. We won the class on almost 69%. I’m really excited because he can be a hot horse and it was great that he settled down and finished on his best test. Kymmy also came 3rd in this class – it shows that hard work pays off! Last year she didn’t make it into the awards and this year she placed in everything she entered. It was really awesome.

Then I had Rosa in 4th level test 3 and she was great; she scored 71% and was leading the class all the way until Stately went and he of course was great as usual and scored 73% to win. It was really exciting because it was a big class! Rosa went around 10 and he went at 1:30. 

Awards Ceremony with Stately
Stately was 4th level champion and Rosa was reserve, and Stately was also highest placed Dutch horse and highest scoring horse of the show. 

Stately is always such a star!
Thanks again to our sponsors and all of the people who are supporting me. This was such a crazy week with so many horses competing and I couldn’t have done so well without all the owners and friends helping out!

Saturday at Dressage at Devon

Aesthete (Stately)
Stately was unreal in fourth level at DAD today, better than I ever had him, and of course he was trying his heart out. We scored almost 75% and won.


Kymmy was in the class as well and placed third- this was a very big deal, especially at Devon, and I am so proud of her because she has come such a long way.

Kymmy and Silva
I had Rosa in the next division and won with 72-something, which was awesome. She had one little spook and otherwise was perfect. She's always been a special horse and is getting so strong and really coming into herself.

Duvent was next and finished fourth; he needs a little bit more time but I believe he's a very good horse. It was his first time in that arena with a lot of atmosphere.

I also want to comment on how well-conditioned and healthy all of the horses are and I think we have a really good plan with the Purina feeds and SmartPak supplements. They are huge supporters and I am lucky to have both companies support me. It shows, too; I get a lot of comments on how great the horses look!
