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!

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.
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%.
Meredith Kay of San Antonio Woman interviewed Christine for their article on the leading equestrian ladies of San Antonio. The entire article can be found here. It’s an honor to be included with so many amazing women. Thank you SA Woman!
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*!
