Thank you so much to Ryan Wood for stopping to chat at the end of a long, busy day, and on the eve of cross country day at Richland. Ryan is back in the saddle since breaking his collarbone just before Bromont, and has brought his string of lovely, young horses up to Michigan as part of his fall campaign heading to Fair Hill. Since leaving Australia, Ryan told me he visited Paul Tapner in England, but ultimately decided to base himself in America, in no small part due to Phillip Dutton’s support and Boyd Martin’s encouragement. It would seem that it was a sensible choice, as so far so good horse wise, business wise, definitely girlfriend-wise, and we’d like to extend him a huge EN congratulations on buying a house last week! Go Woodstock Eventing and Go Ryan Wood!
