Graham and Anita Motion’s Icabad Crane has been easily progressing through the levels with Phillip Dutton since beginning his eventing career last year, and he’s now slated to make his one-star debut at Plantation Field International Horse Trials this fall.

We’ve followed the 10-year-old Thoroughbred gelding’s progress closely, and behind-the-scenes videos from Phillip have given us an insider’s look at the training process and the temperament of the Preakness and Belmont stakes runner and America’s Most Wanted Thoroughbred.

In this newest training video, Phillip focuses on Icabad Crane’s flatwork, working on developing expression and collection in his gaits. We’ll keep bringing you more updates from Icabad Crane’s training as he prepares for his first one-star at Plantation Field in September.

Go Icabad!
