On Cue had a go at her first CCI4*-L format at Bromont this past weekend. She did NOT disappoint! She went into Cross Country with her dressage score of 30.70, going four seconds over optimum time, carrying 1.60 penalty points into show jumping and holding second place with a 32.30.
Boyd has continually complimented Cue on her fitness level and her strong willed demeanor. She took down one rail in her stadium round, adding 4 total penalty points to her score. Finishing Bromont with a 36.30 and securing 3rd place. Not bad for a first whack at the long format 4*!!!
We are hoping On Cue can be a contender for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics! Only time will tell but, we are sure this amazing mare is up for it!

This weekend included a trip to Maryland with Mike Pendleton, for the Fair Hill International Horse Trials. Electra our grey goddess :), took third in her Opening Training-A division. Contaro, has been delivering with his dressage tests, and growing more and more confident in his abilities through his stadium jumping rounds, and cross country. Can’t wait to see what the next year holds for these two!
Thomas and Boyd had an amazing dressage test on Friday afternoon, securing third place with a 27.9!
We all know cross country day is the most nerve racking, exciting, heart wrenching day. The first three riders on course today, fell off! Even though we were all a little shaken by the initial chaos, Boyd and Thomas ran cross country like machines. They finished at 11:11 within the time and no faults, DOUBLE CLEAR! This put them in SECOND place on their initial dressage score! We are less than one rail away from the current and previous Kentucky champ, Oliver Townend. But, the highest scoring Americans 🙂
Sunday includes the last inspection and stadium begins at 1pm. Stadium jumping will be an edge-of-the-seat experience for sure.
Fingers crossed for a great round!
