I’m delighted to have won the International Showjumper of the Year award which was presented at the Showjumpers Awards Ball tonight in Kildare.
I feel so fortunate to have a top class team of people behind me and great horses and owners without whom my successes would not be possible.
Unfortunately as I’m jumping in Geneva this weekend I could not attend tonight’s awards.
