Boyd & KYRA won the CIC2* at the Virgina CCI/CIC/Horse Trails!
On Cue won the CCI2* at Fair Hill this past weekend!
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.
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*!
You can find more on Boyd’s thoughts, here.

We have donated one breeding to each of our stallions, Halimey Go *Ps* and Rusticus, to the Stallion Service Auction hosted by the American Trakehner Association. This is a great chance to breed to some top stallions at a fraction of the cost to you!

We wish everyone a wonderful Holiday season & a Merry Christmas! As most of you know, south Texas was surprised by snowfall. We took this opportunity to throw some bows and a little mistletoe on our boy, Prinz Von der Ahe “Prinz”. We have been dressing him up since he was born, we think he likes it 🙂
