Cian O'Connor
Olympic Bronze Medallist


What a week at Aachen!

Cian competed at perhaps the world’s most prestigious show jumping venue this month - Aachen in Germany. 

Aachen is not only a five-star venue but boasts one of the biggest arenas in the world, and the reputation for the most difficult courses. 

Cian had two wins with Lillie Keenan’s Be Gentle at the show, taking the speed class on Wednesday and following this up with the No.1 placing in the Prize of Sparkasse, which includes hunting elements such as ditches and banks. 

In the Grand Prix on Sunday Cian brought out his top horse Good Luck and had a fence off in each round to finish in 14th place.

 Cian said afterwards: “I felt our rail in round one was particularly unlucky, as Good Luck barely touched the vertical at the third part of the treble, which rolled backwards out of the cups. He's really learning how to gallop at these big jumps and I feel a big win is just around the corner!” 

Cian added: “There are many good horse shows in the world and then there is Aachen - incomparable!”
