Boyd Martin’s salute to the crowd after coming through the water complex with Steve Blauner’s Master Frisky served as a highlight of the day for spectators who came out to watch cross country at Millbrook Horse Trials on Saturday. Many of Boyd’s syndicate owners live in this area, and a large swarm of his supporters were camped out at the WaterView tent all day cheering him on as he came through with each horse.
After an especially large cheer for Master Frisky, Boyd’s last ride in the Advanced division, he returned the favor in kind and waved back at the crowd. I was taking photos during the salute, but EN reader Julie Peterson, who was watching cross country next to me, caught it on video and was kind enough to send it our way. Many thanks to Julie for the video. Go Millbrook, and Go Eventing.
