Often the week right after the Dublin show can be a bit depressing as the hype abates.
This year we took no break and packed the trucks with 13 horses and four riders and headed for Millstreet. We cleaned up.
Mark won the Accumulator with Rocco and I was second with Goldex. Deane was runner up with Captain Rossi in the four year old National Discovery final. Everything won the Boomerang qualifier and final. Onira was fourth in the Derby and Ballymore Eustace and Carpe Diem were first and second in the Grand Prix. It was really a great show.
Millstreet has always been a lucky show for me and this latest visit was a reminder just how special the place is. It's by far one of the finest equestrian facilities in the country and it would be great to see it being used to its full capacity and appreciated by the wider equestrian community.
I’m home for two weeks now and will jump next Sunday at Boswell Equestrian Centre in Co. Wicklow.
