Ballindenisk 16th May

Daniel’s Blog

I was competing at Ballindenisk on Sunday with 5 horses. The ground still isn’t great over here, we are still hoping for some more sunshine which meant the show jumping was especially tricky for all the horses.
I rode Ballybolger Watchman for John Watson in the Novice, he was on top form to do a very smart test, rolled one pole but jumped an easy clear x-c to finish 3rd.
I had four horses in the 100, all 5 years old and I have produced them all from day one which makes it even more enjoyable. They were all very grown up for their second event of the year, all posting good dressage tests with a few silly baby mistakes but all jumping double clear out of testing conditions which I was delighted with.
Ballyvillane OBOS owned by Richard Ames finished 7th.
Italy owned by Richard 4th.
Warrenstown Cruz owned by Tanja O’Flynn 3rd.
Derena Superstar owned by Richard 2nd.
A massive thank you to Lee Maher and Orla Mulvihill for keeping the rather busy day running so smoothly.
