Boyd Martin, the son of Winter Olympic athletes Toy (Dorgan) Martin and the late Ross Martin, began riding at a young age in his native Australia. He found much success before moving to the U.S. in 2007 to further his career as an eventing professional, serving as the assistant trainer to Olympian Phillip Dutton for two years before starting his own business. Martin has dual citizenship for Australia and the U.S., and he began riding for the U.S. in 2009.
Martin has claimed numerous top placings with several mounts during his time representing the U.S. In 2018, he and Tsetserleg placed ninth in the Red Hills International CIC3*, eighth in The Fork/WEG Test Event CIC3*, and 11th in the horse’s CCI4* debut in the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event. Martin also won the Jersey Fresh International CCI3* with Long Island T and the CIC3* with Kyra.
Martin is married to his wife, Silva, who is a Grand Prix dressage rider and co-owner of the couple’s farm, Windurra, USA. They have two sons, Nox and Leo Rossco.
