Boyd Martin’s Monday News and Notes from ECOGOLD


Well, finding out that Boyd is a lady has really eased a lot of my problems. I no longer have to have a mad crush on him. Nor do I have to be intimidated by is good looks. Although, I do feel a little bad for Silva. Hopefully this news isn’t coming as a huge shock. One person I can guarantee is more sad that me- Lainey Ashker. Oh well, we love you Boyd, leading lady rider and all.
Speaking of Lainey- I hear she taught a fantastic clinic in Hugo, MN for Croixide PC. With great Dressage and SJ advice, all you pony clubbers (and anyone else) should jump on the opportunity to ride with Ms. Ashker next time she is in your area. The crew in MN brings in great clinicians and I’m sure Lainey will be returning to MN soon. I believe Lainey shacked up with EN’s Ali, which makes me fear so Lainey just a small bit…

I always feel like winter is a good time of year to buy a horse. Heading into the remaining month(s) of the year, some people are more eager to get their sale horses moved. Eager=cheaper. So for those of you shopping/selling, maybe a performance horse auction is the way to go. Check out this auction at Luhmuhlen. A lot of top quality horses! [Top Eventers
Doug Payne has decided to keep his butt in the tack this time. Doug and Urlando hit up the jumper ring at Nona Garson’s farm, taking home a blue ribbon. Good boy, Doug. We like you on top of the horse. [DPEquestrian
Good news! Looks like Red Hills 2012 is a go. The site has posted info for their 2012 horse trial. The judges, officials, announcers, farriers, vets, ground jury members, etc., are all listed on the site. This is a great event with a great atmosphere. Mark your calendars. [Red Hills
The Royal Agriculture Winter Fair has announced that pending the FEI’s confirmation, it’s World Cup Grand Prix will be named Hickstead World Cup Grand Prix. It is wonderful to see all the ways in which Hickstead is being honored. This will surely be a highlight Grand Prix for so many people who loved and supported Hickstead. [RAWF]    
Does your horse have talent? Do you have it on film? If so, submit it. Horse and Country TV is looking for videos of talented horses. All you have to do is log in, upload, and submit. Make sure to check out the other videos too. I particularly like the one where the horse plays dead and the girl uses her “top” as a handy treat storage place. [Talent]

For those of you who miss most of the good stuff on TV, here is a little piece of one soulful little girl. A young Beyonce? I sure think so. Wow, she is incredible at such a young age…

Have a great week. Go Eventing.
