Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 17
Heading into the Tier I Handy Round of the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championships, Liza Boyd knew she had some ground to make up as she trailed Scott Stewart and Garfield by 10 points.
But when she was warming up for the class her father and trainer Jack Towell tried to get her to put that out of her head.
“He said, it’s a jumping contest—don’t go out there and try to get a 100,” said Boyd. “That’s a little hard for me to do.”
