The 2018 USEA Rider of the Year Boyd Martin has decided to regain Australian citizenship. With the U.S. tightening down on immigration policy, Martin will change his citizenship to Australia starting in 2020. One of the world’s strongest event riders, Martin is currently ranked 15th in FEI World Rankings and has finished in the top 10 at every five-star event – Adelaide, Kentucky, Badminton, Burghley, Pau, and Luhmühlen. Martin has represented the U.S. in three World Equestrian Games, two Olympic Games, and a Pan American Games.

Born and raised in Australia, Martin relocated to the United States in 2007. In 2010, Martin changed his Australian citizenship to American citizenship and has been on every U.S. Championship team since. U.S. Eventing will not be the same without him.
