MILLBROOK — Boyd Martin and Neville Bardos are Olympic contenders. This horse-and-rider team (Neville is the horse) has been through thick and thin — and even fire — together, and Martin hopes to cap a year filled with tragedy with an Olympic medal in London this summer.
Like the best of sports dramas, their story is filled with tragedy, redemption, hope and heart.
Australian-born Martin rescued Neville, a 3-year-old thoroughbred, from the track, and turned him into an eventing star. In April 2011, Neville was once again rescued, this time from a horrific barn fire in Upperville, Pa.
