And he looks stunning in every shot. His rider will be the envy of the other pony riders.

Anyone know what happened to top event rider Boyd Martin at Plantation Fields today? He had a fall and all of his horses were withdrawn. Praying he is ok! No news on Eventing Nation or Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you to everyone's concern for Boyd. He did take a good knock on the right leg and his head, but he is going to be fine. Thankfully NOTHING broken and he's in good spirits. We're just going to force him to rest tonight!! He'll bounce back quickly.......


Glad he will be okay.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Is that pony someone notable? Sorry that I don't recognize him, although he is handsome. :P ;)

Sorry, on my monitor I couldn't read the name at first. Had to look closely to find Lava Man. :D

The Coach hard at work. He LOVES Mrs. Fields cookies, and "asks" for them occasionaly on FB. There is a video on Youtube of him helping himself to the feed bin, and he taught another horse to do it as well- cant remember who that was.
