Australian native Ryan Wood started competing in eventing at 8 years old. He completed his first CCI***** at Adelaide when he was 19 years old and continued to compete successfully throughout Australia, garnering top placings at Melbourne CCI****, Sydney CCI**** and Warwick CIC-W****. In 2008, Ryan moved to the United States and started working for Bruce Davidson before moving to Phillip Dutton’s True Prospect Farm in Unionville, Pennsylvania. He now runs his own business, Woodstock Eventing out of True Prospect Farm.

Since moving to the U.S. Ryan has become one of the top event riders in the country. In 2016 he won the Jersey Fresh CCI***, Bromont CCI*** and the USEA Adequan Advanced Gold Cup Final at the American Eventing Championships—where he also earned the reserve championship. In 2018 Ryan finished 8th at Pau CCI***** and was named the reserve rider for the Australian eventing team at World Equestrian Games. In addition to competing, Ryan also enjoys teaching and developing young horses.

In this episode, Ryan shares his overall training philosophy, how to introduce cross-country corners, what he looks for in an eventing prospect, how he deals with the lows of the sport and more.
