Boyd has two greys at Pau this week: Crackerjack, who sits 10th after dressage (47.7), and Welcome Shadow, who is in 25th (51.9). The event will be Welcome Shadow’s CCI4* debut and Boyd sounds pleased with the 11-year-old Thoroughbred cross mare’s effort.
“She’d been working really well all week, and I was getting excited about her test. She got a little bit tense and nervous when she got in the ring and got a bit curled in her frame and fell behind a little bit,” Boyd said.
“She didn’t make any big mistakes. She was green and felt like it for her first four-star test in a ring with that type of atmosphere. Scoring a 52 for her first four-star is a score to be proud of, and looking at the course we’re facing tomorrow, I think it’s going to be anyone’s day.”
