Here is an awesome interview by Amber Heintzberger. We currently have a three year old filly on her way to Boyd to begin training, and we are SO excited to see how they do! We will keep you updated on her progress as Boyd reports, we call her Xena.
Until then, Check out the video where Boyd talks about taking Tsetserleg “Thomas” to a 4* in 2018, On Cue’s progress, and our wild child KYRA.
The United States Eventing Association has named Halimey Go, Stallion of the Year 2016. That’s two years in a row for our Hal. We are so proud of Buck Davidson, Jr and Hal for completing their first year together as a team, and doing so well! 2017 is going to be a great year for our horses and riders, we can feel it.

We’ve spent the weekend at the American Eventing Championships, held at Tryon International Equestrian Center! Our riders did an amazing job, Boyd took 3rd with Tsetserleg (“Thomas”) and Buck Davidson held 7th with Halimey, in Open Intermediate!
Proud to announce that Boyd and Blackfoot ran clear and in great time with only 3.2 time penalties on cross country.
We will be updating as information rolls in!
Update: Phillip Dutton and Boyd Martin hold 5th and 6th place, individually! (and respectively) Unfortunately, Clark and Lauren were eliminated, but we are confident Phillip and Boyd can hold it down for USA.
Final: Phillip Dutton took Bronze with a total 51.80!! What a beautiful stadium jump round and that cross country run just about gave us a heart attack. Dutton has a superhero hidden in those shoes.
Boyd and Blackfoot Mystery took 16th with a 71.90. Finishing in top 20!
Only 40% of the riders made it through that cross country course! It was definitely a tough one.
This has been a long road for this team, and we are thrilled to have a sound horse and healthy rider. Many thanks to Windurra USA, LLC for giving us the opportunity to work with such talent!!!!
Boyd Martin & Blackfoot Mystery are probably warming up in Rio as I post. They are the “trailblazers” in the Cross Country phase for the US team. The US is tied after dressage for 6th place in Eventing! Go team USA!!!!!
This year will be the first time the Holekamp-Turner Grant will be used. The most qualified horse from the YEH in 2013 will be able to go to France to compete for the US as a 7 year old at Le Lion d’Angers Championships for Young Horses.
Horses bred in the US receive $17,500 towards their travel. Horses that have been imported receive $8000
It Looks like D.A Duras with rider Kelly Prather is at this point first in line.
