Up first – meet superstar eventer Boyd Martin. This Australian native relocated to the United States in 2007 to pursue his dreams of international eventing competition. He and his wife Silva, a Grand Prix dressage rider originally from Germany who now rides for the U.S., operate Windurra USA out of Phillip Dutton’s True Prospect Farm. Now riding for the U.S., Boyd, who has dual citizenship, was the top-finishing American individual and a member of the 4th-placed Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team at the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY.
Lexington, KY (November 2, 2010) – As a member of the World Equestrian Games US Eventing team, Boyd Martin lived out every rider’s fairytale dream when he finished tenth individually and fourth place with the team at World Equestrian Games – all on an ex-racehorse he bought for $800 off the track. Martin joined radio host LA Pomeroy on Holistic Horse Radio Show following WEG to talk about his incredible journey, his ex-racehorse, and his supporters who helped him make it to his first international competition for the United States.
“The USEF said the highlight of the Team USA for eventing at WEG was the lovely double clear round jumped by Boyd and Windurra LLC’s Neville Bardos,” Pomeroy stated as she introduced Martin on the radio show, adding that Martin and Neville finished with a dressage score of 49.5. “Neville was in a demanding career before you got him, so tell us your secret to keeping him sound, solid and happy.”
