Chronicle of the Horse Cover!

It was a pleasant surprise this week to receive the Chronicle of the Horse issue with THOMAS ON THE FRONT COVER!

And he made the Wofford Top 5 Picks! What an amazing feature rolling into Kentucky this week. We are ready!

Fair Hill CCI4*-S

On Cue and Boyd took 1st in their division this weekend. It was Cue’s second 4*!

“Fourth after dressage, Christine Turner’s 12-year-old Anglo-European mare (Cabri D’Elle x On High, Primitive Rising) powered through the jumping phases with one rail down and 12.4 time penalties across country. The final result of 48.6 secured her a fourth international career win.” – Shelby Allen with Eventing Nation

Contaro took first in his Training B division!

We were lucky enough to join in on the Luke 140 Syndication with Boyd, Luke did very well in his Prelim-C Division, ending the weekend with a second place finish. Cue CIC4*S Screen Shot 2019-04-22 at 1.07.14 PM Screen Shot 2019-04-22 at 1.07.27 PM

 

Update!

We are one week away from the first day of dressage at Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event!

Thomas (Tsetserleg) and Boyd were drawn 51st, which means their test will begin on Friday. You can find the draw list here. To say we are excited, is an understatement. Last year our team finished 11th and, as most of you know, this is one of the hardest events in any given year. Now that Thomas is a bit more seasoned in the 4* world, we have high hopes for a top finish. But, any finish is something to be proud of when you are asked such challenging questions.

We will be sure to keep you updated on our Facebook page or our Instagram, @IndianCreekFarmLLC.

Also, Fair Hill is this weekend. On Cue will be having a go at her second 4* and Contaro will be shown by Mike Pendleton in Training B!

Non show related news…

Most of us in the horse world have already had many of our spring foals. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our newest Indian Creek Farm member! This foal is out of Piper KD by our Trakehner stallion Halimey Go. We have always had stunning foals out of Piper and by Halimey, but have never combined the two. We are thrilled to meet this new foal. We will be sure to update you as the story develops 🙂

Again, thank you to all of our friends and family that continue to support us, and our horses as we tackle the world of 3 day eventing.

On Cue was entered into her first 4* ever! Boyd went in wanting to give Cue a safe run, and that’s what they did! Boyd asked, Cue answered. Finished 15th! Love that mare!

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.
