This weekend I was competing in Falsterbo, Sweden. I had an amazing weekend winning three classes!
I had three back to back wins which was amazing, as I have not competed at as many international show recently. Joe Flynn's Ardcolumn Duke was the first to post a win in the 1.45m competition on Thursday, he then went on to win the Derby Qualifier on Friday. He was on amazing form and feels as good as he ever has.
On Friday, Kim Barzilay's Kimba Flamenco jumped in the €200,000 Longines Grand Prix of Falsterbo, he jumped his socks of to go in to the lead and win the class.
" My horses are going really welll here obviously" he said with a smile after the class. "My horse today was in really good form, ahead of this event he was 2nd in the 4* Grand Prix at Bolesworth and is now established at this level, so I was quite confident he would put in a good performance today. I actually thought it was a great event today, the ground, the competition and the courses that were built, were perfect. It was great jumping today and a great day of sport. I thought Irma had got me at the end but I just managed to hang on".
I would just like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to my Owners, Home Team and family of sponsors who help me compete in this sport at the highest level.
