Monday News:

The new West coast Young Event Horse and Future Event Horse champions have been crowned! Four new winners have been selected after a tough competition held at Twin Rivers Ranch in Paso Robles, Ca. Click here to read the full report from the weekend.

I always love watching Puissance competition, and this weekend three winners tied for the big win at the relocated Washington International Horse Show. WIHS was held at Tryon Resort in North Carolina instead of indoors in Washington, DC, and it looked like it was a weekend to remember!

Maryland 5 Star winner Boyd Martin has found a lot of success on the backs of former racehorses. In fact, his first 5* win (and also his first attempt at the level) came aboard the Australian Thoroughbred True Blue Toozac. Then, later would come the great Neville Bardos. You can take a deeper dive into the Thoroughbreds Boyd has partnered with in this feature from Victoria Racing Club.
