Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show

Team Ireland manager Robert Splaine has announced the team for the 2015 Aga Khan trophy, which will compete against the world's best on 7 August at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show. The Irish squad comprises:

  • Bertram Allen with Romanov
  • Greg Broderick with Going Global (ISH)
  • Darragh Kenny with Sans Soucis Z
  • Cian O’ Connor with Good Luck
  • Conor Swail with Grand Cru VD Vijf Eiken

Cian brings Adena Springs’s Good Luck and was pleased to participate once more in this prestigious event, saying "I'm delighted to have been selected for the Dublin squad. We need a big result here and I'm hopeful I can give a positive contribution".
That time of year again!

The build up to Dublin reminds of me Christmas - there is always great excitement. I have just got back home with my staff and clients, having been on tour since last December. It's nice to be back in Ireland as there is no place like home. This weekend we will jump some of the horses at the South County Dublin show in Coilog to give them their final run before Dublin.

I take Good Luck, Coco, Aramis and Ikkea to Dublin. I feel it's a decent string and all have the ability and form to win a class. I'll post regular updates on my Facebook page throughout the show so please check it out here and like the page if you haven’t already!
