Spot the eventer amongst the dressage divas! While Silva Martin was originally slated to ride in the Dressage at Devon 2023 Master Class with Dutch Olympian Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour, she wound up being a little busy this week giving birth to her and Boyd’s third child. Boyd ended up getting the best seat (saddle) in the house and taking Silva’s place as a demo rider, gracing the Dixon Oval aboard one of his eventing mounts, Commando 3, on Thursday night. We’re still waiting on word of how many changes Cathrine made them do!

Sponsor Corner: I recently saw a video on social media of someone taking a hose to a gorgeous leather saddle… Please don’t do this, you’ll make team EN cry! Instead, take the advice of World Equestrian Brands. Use a high-quality tack cleaner/conditioner like Amerigo Leather Care. And please. Put the hose down.
