Homeward bound - for a while!

  • Blue Loyd in action on Friday night at Wellington

The Nations Cup week is always very enjoyable in Palm Beach and with no shortage of Irish support the team gave it their best shot.

Everybody played their part but unfortunately the German team were that bit better on the night and we had to settle for second. Blue Loyd was class, jumping one of only four double clears in the competition.

I can’t believe we're two thirds of the way there in this 12 week circuit. Tomorrow I fly home for one week to both catch up on matters there and also give the horses here a break.

I’m really looking forward to going back even for a week just to go to the yard and feel some bit of normality again! It’s great here but not the real world in any shape or form!

I'll go to the show in Broadmeadow next weekend to help Mark which I'll enjoy.

Check back next week for more news.
