Martin Makes It Three in a Row

Practical Horseman - - Winner’s Circle -

Even­ter Boyd Martin made his­tory in late Jan­uary, fin­ish­ing first on Wel­come Shadow in the Land Rover Welling­ton Event­ing Show­case at the Palm Beach In­ter­na­tional Equestrian Cen­ter in Florida. It was his third con­sec­u­tive vic­tory in the event, which has been held only three times. “This year was by far the hard­est to win,” Martin said. “It was a much more com­pet­i­tive field and the cal­iber of horses was the best we’ve ever seen here.”

Aboard Craig and Glo­ria Callen’s 12-year-old Ir­ish Sport Horse, Martin posted a score of 27.3, pick­ing up just .8 time penal­ties on cross coun­try. Buck David­son and Pe­tite Flower came in sec­ond with 30.9 and Doug Payne and Van­diver rounded out the top three with 34.2.
