Thomas & Boyd made the cover of the May/June issue of Eventing USA!
And a special throwback of baby Tsetserleg within the article!
Just an update around here!
The summer heat is starting to creep in, we had a few days of wind but for some reason it just couldn’t push the humidity out of the air. It was sticky.
Our Piper KD x Halimey Go *Ps* colt has found his barn name, Simon! He is sweet as can be, loves to play and has a very inquisitive attitude, we love watching his mind at work.
This weekend is Waradaca where our girl, Electra, will be competing with Mike Pendleton. I’ll be sure to update you on Monday to let you know how she did!
A lot of our youngsters have been getting more and more hands on time exploring, being introduced to more and more levels of training. They are witty and do a pretty impressive job of picking up what we’re putting down, quickly!
Hope everyone had a great Veterans day weekend and we will see you on the next post!
The organization formerly known as the American Warmblood Society, has been renamed to the American Warmblood Society and Sporthorse Registry. In this change, they have sent us new forms reflecting that our two stallions, Halimey Go *PsE* and Rusticus, have been awarded Elite status.
As always, if you are interested in breeding your mare to one of our stallions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also offer our stallions through the American Trakehner Association Stallion Service Auction, and the American Warmblood Society and Sporthorse Registry Stud Service Auctions, at least once a year. Typically, at a discounted price!
The USEF created this amazing montage of Boyd & Thomas at LRK3DE.
If this doesn’t make you shed a tear…

Yesterday was the first Land Rover Kentucky Three Day Event inspection! Thomas presented last and was accepted.
Times are as follows for Thomas & Boyd –
Dressage Friday at 2:44pm
Cross Country begins Saturday at 1:44pm
HAPPY WATCHING! and GO TEAM THOMAS!
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.
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.
