Dressage only for our Eventers

Cue and Thomas had a dressage show this weekend! Boyd wanted to focus on dressage knowing that our horses would be excited, assuming they were doing a cross country run the next day. But not this time…

Cue won her 3rd Level Test 1 class with a 70%!

Thomas was feeling a bit fresh as well but still went home with a 65.375%.

Update

Man! It has been a minute. South Texas is slowly but surely drowning under all of this seemingly never ending rain. Things at home base are on the slower side as far as training since the entire place is under water, hacks and trail rides are all we have for now, sunny days are on the horizon…hopefully.

We haven’t updated since the announcement of the WEG nomination. Thomas and Boyd finished! They had their personal best dressage test, including the nicest flying changes we have seen thus far ;). Cross Country was very tough, Thomas had a little slip up but the pair finished slightly over time. Three rails down in stadium jumping, but we went to WEG knowing that this was Thomas’ second 4*, and if he completed the course, we were happy. Of course you always want to win in this sport, but seeing the heart in this horse every time he is asked a tough question, is truly astounding. I’m sure we can speak for Boyd, and our horse, that being asked to represent the USA, is something we will never take for granted.

WEG!

It was announced that Boyd and Thomas will be headed to the World Equestrian Games to represent the USA come September.

In the seemingly short amount of time these two have been a team, we could not have imagined that they would place 11th at Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event, let alone be chosen to go to WEG. What an amazing time for Boyd, Thomas and all of us here at Indian Creek.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us! We could not be more thrilled!

This weekend was something else! Boyd took 1st the CCI3*, CIC3* and CCI2* at the Jersey Fresh International. Two of those firsts happened to be our mares in their own 2* and 3* debuts! On Cue in the CCI2* and KYRA in the CIC3*!
