Long - but fun!

  • Blue Loyd at Palm Beach

It has been a long but highly enjoyable three month circuit in Florida.

The horses acquitted themselves superbly in the final week at WEF. (Click HERE for news.) I came here with the goal of developing Blue Loyd as my main target and I feel that has gone according to plan. It has been long for all of us - man and beast- but for only April 1st we have achieved a lot and I feel that we are set up well and in a strong position for the major European shows which kick off in May.

I have sold some horses and already acquired a new horse. He has jumped Grands Prix in Australia and I’m really excited about getting to know him next month. Thats what often keeps us going - the change of faces looking over the door at you! Its often a challenge to find new top horses but I believe you always will and thats why I’m never afraid to sell.

I know i am extremely lucky and am grateful to all my team such as grooms, riders, owners and supporters, but I really want to thank my beautiful wife Ruth for all her love and support and putting up with me all the time!

The whole entourage returns to Ireland this week for a well earned Spring break.
