Nice end to the home circuit

  • Trebox Acorada in action at Cavan

The grand finale of the Irish show jumping calendar year took place in Cavan last weekend with five days of excellent jumping. I had a good show, winning the two feature classes (click here for full story).

Most of my horses will have a rest for the next 6 weeks until the end of the year. I will however take Ulano, Splendor and Dual Star to my remaining shows at Stockholm, La Coruna and Olympia, all before the end of the year.

Dual Star is a new addition that I purchased last week. She is a 10 yr old mare by Quick Star out of a Concorde mare, bred here in Ireland during the Necarne breeding programme some years ago. I'm thrilled to have her and I hope I can build on the success that she had with her former rider John McLoughlin, who produced her so well.

Its been a remarkable year and it's not over just yet! I'm busy with a few irons in the fire and will be launching a brand new website before Christmas which I'm looking forward to.

December will be a fun a month as we have been invited to many different sports awards evenings which will enjoyable and nice to reflect back on 2012.
