UAE tour finished in good style

Michael Duffy and Cian finished up their U.A.E tour in good style at the World Cup Show in Dubai. It was the last of three shows that they did, the other two being Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. All horses improved on the tour and it was really great experience for them.

Michael was 5th in Friday's Grand Prix qualifier world ranking class with O'Connell Street and rode a super accurate round. Cian was pleased how his horses jumped saying, "Ulano was consistently in the prizes, Copycat learned an awful lot and is for sure a top horse for the future, and Unique was outstanding every time he jumped - he was third in Friday's GP qualifier and 6th in the GP itself”.

“It was a most enjoyable trip on many levels and it's fantastic to see how quickly the level of competition has developed on the Arab league and I've no doubt will continue to grow.”
