With the 2017 USEA Annual Convention being held in California, it’s probably safe to assume that the vast majority of attendees flew in from the east across the continental United States. That was not the case for Boyd Martin, though, for whom off-season downtime does not exist. Boyd jetted across the Pacific Ocean straight to the convention after teaching a three day clinic on retraining racehorses at the Miki Horseland Park in Japan.
The clinic was hosted by the Japan Racing Association, the National Riding Club Association of Japan and Godolphin, who put together the video below in which Boyd reflects on how the riders and horses progressed over the course of the clinic.
