Keeping all balls in the air!

Hi Everyone,

I’m just in Abu Dhabi airport now on Saturday night about to board the night flight to Dublin. It’s been a nice two weeks in Dubai taking in the world cup shows at Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. All the horses have jumped well and been consistently in the ribbons.

Next week I give these horses a week off but I go home to work the group of 6 horses that I will take to Florida in February and also help Ross with the 7 horses that he will compete on the Spanish Sunshine Tour at the same time.

Last night I was delighted and honoured to receive the award of Sports Star of the Year at the Meath Chronicle / Cusack Hotel Group’s Meath Sports Person Awards Ceremony. I've lived in Meath for the last 10 years and proud to say that I'm here to stay - Meath is definitely my adopted county! Unfortunately I couldn't be there but my sister Pippa did the honours and I'm sure most of the sport's fans were more than pleased to see her!!

I have a busy week ahead which I enjoy but it’s a full time job trying to keep all the balls in the air!
