Just home from Nations’ Cup show in Falsterbo. I myself got a late call up to go there following the withdrawal of Shane Carey’s horse and despite not even currently riding Splendor, Robert Splaine had no other option but to ask me to come and help the team if I could.
Thankfully the horse’s owner Ahmed Tolba is very supportive and he was as enthusiastic as any of us on the day, wishing the Irish to do well.
Splendor jumped for a 4 and a 4 to help the team finish 5th and I must say he handled the course very easily.
All the horses jumped great for the weekend and I was very pleased with their performance.
I’m home now for a few days then I head back to Germany . I’ve just bought an exciting new eight year old that I’m looking forward to ride, and over the next ten days I will gradually move the 20 horses from Germany back to Ireland and start to prepare for the Dublin Horse Show, which is only a few weeks away.
No rest for the wicked - gotta keep moving!
