The Christmas Elves Have Been Busy at Windurra

I must extend a huge thank you to my favorite Christmas Elves, Pam Murphy and Cheryl Griffith, for transforming our barn for Christmas! One might think that all the decorations were bought, but that is not the case; Cheryl and Pam made everything themselves! I am very impressed and grateful that our horses and we will be celebrating the holidays in style! -Silva

Boyd and Silva Talk Horses at University of Delaware

Silva and I were both honoured to give a classroom lecture a couple of nights 
ago at the University of Delaware. There is such a strong equestrian presence at this school that the students have formed an equestrian team. 

Silva and I gave a talk for around an hour, discussing the ins and outs of 
running a business with horses, training techniques, and the competition 
lifestyle. I am now proud to say that I attended the University of Deleware.

Steady Eddie Prepares for Advanced Level

Denise Lahey, Pierre Colin and George and Gretchen Wintersteen's Steady Eddie  has had a great year of competing at the Intermediate level in 2013. I am looking forward to another great year in 2014 when he moves up to the advanced level. With this goal in mind, Silva has taken over Eddie's dressage work this winter, teaching him flying changes. So far, the 'Eagle' looks like he has got the idea.
