From Cairo To Kilkenny!

  • Complete, who took his third win of the HSI Chippison Tour at Warrington today

It's been a long but successful week. Last Monday I travelled to Cairo to give a three-day clinic in Egypt. The weather was fantastic - 30 degrees actually during the day and I was teaching in an equestrian club that was situated right in the middle of the city, which has a population of seven million.

The standard was great and talent of the younger riders especially was fantastic - I enjoyed it immensely.

Just got home now from Warrington in Kilkenny on this Bank Holiday Monday, where Complete picked up his third win of this HSI Chippison series. He was calm and collected, and his jump-off round felt smooth and he won it well within himself.

I was really delighted with my new horse, K Club Lady, who was a new arrival to my stable last Thursday and she jumped a beautiful double clear to finish 6th.

I've no show next weekend but I'm holding my final Workshop next Saturday at Waterside Stud before heading abroad on my international campaign. Check back next week to see how that goes.
