THEAULT ON THE ROAD
It's been quite a busy winter for Theault America with several more vehicles sold to happy customers but with the sun now shining in the North it's time to hit the road again.....
Another Thrilling Year at The Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event!
Another busy Rolex Kentucky 3 Day Event has come to an end. It was a thrilling time for the crew at Theault-America, going back to the blue grass state to support ambassador Boyd Martin, as well as many other of our favorite international riders. Boyd started out in top form on his young horse Trading Aces, laying down a stellar dressage test and moving into XC within shot of a top 10 finish.
Unfortunately, as this was Oscar's first 4*, the course proved just a bit too long, so Boyd pulled up with the finish line in site. Always the consummate horseman, Boyd realized that the risk of injury was not worth going for broke, but Oscar showed amazing aptitude for being a top international competitor. Check out this video of his form going through the Sunken Road!
SILVA MARTIN DOMINATES 4TH LEVEL AT DAD!
What a treat to watch sponsored rider, Silva Martin, firmly dominate the 4th Level classes at Dressage at Devon this past week! Her talented young group of horses will certainly be a competitive force in the future!

Home to our sponsored rider and 2012 Olympic team member, Boyd Martin, Plantation Field is in it's 5th year of hosting the CIC international event, and it was a smashing success! This year the event was larger than ever, featuring 4 of the 5 US Eventing team members and packed entries in all of the National and International divisions.

FITCH'S CORNER HIGHLIGHTS
With so much of the North East desperate for rain it was a welcome sight when it arrived......only why did it have to be Dressage day at Fitch's Corner!?! Well eventers are a hardy crowd, the ground lapped up the water and everybody got on with their tests in good spirit, rising on Saturday to find glorious blue sky's and the most perfect conditions for cross country!
US TEAM TRAVELS IN STYLE!
