David O’Connor and Boyd Martin Share their Stories in New Podcast Series

By Adequan - Press Release

Two of our favorite United States Eventing Olympians share the untold moments of impact in their lives and careers with horses. Brought to you by American Regent Animal Health, maker of Adequan® i.m. (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan), the “Stories in Stride” podcast explores how these greats—and others—bridled their unique talents to thrive in the equestrian world.

Hear their most impactful memories as well as words of wisdom in their invigorating interviews.

In O’Connor’s episode, you’ll hear him talk about his informative riding trip across America with his mother at age 11, his incredible Olympic mounts, and his time as USEF President.

“Put yourself around the best people you can find... and just be around them. Usually, if you’re annoying enough, they give you a job.” - David O’Connor, two-time Olympian and former USEF President

Martin shares his equestrian upbringing in Australia, his move to America, the harrowing rescue of his horse from a burning barn, and how the equestrian community has shaped his family and life in his episode.

“The [best] advice you receive isn’t spoken. It’s learnt behavior from watching... [it’s] how [winners] handle themselves once the competition is over.” - Boyd Martin, two-time Olympian and international five-star rider
