Boyd Martin – FHI 2014 – Excellent Save

October 29, 2014

At the Fair Hill International CCI***, Boyd Martin had an excellent save on the final water combination.  Because of this he has been referred to as Velcro Boyd, with lots of talk on social media following the event.

You can see his save in this video.  What I love the most is how he shows his experience and quick thinking to make that Log fence after his quick recovery.  He maintains forward momentum and does not cross his path, and still manages to line up the fence, and get his horse over it.  And what a good horse to come back and finish the course.

Zoe and I were at this event, and happened to be at this combination when it took place, shooting off a few photos.  Zoe caught these photos below.
