What an incredible weekend back on home turf. The Dublin Horse Show is without a doubt a highlight of our international calendar every year – with the opportunity to return home to the emerald isle and jump in the phenomenal main arena at this show. With an unmatched atmosphere, and a fantastic week of sport, we can’t wait to come back each August.

We took homebred star of the stable ‘Highland President’ and new ride ‘Don Juan 111Z’ for the CSI5* Competition, and they certainly made it a weekend to remember.

Don Juan made a great impression at his first show with us – starting off on Wednesday by jumping a clear round in the opening CSI5* 1,45m Speed Stakes – finishing 9th in a competitive field. The following day he took on the Speed Derby Challenge – again jumping clear and finishing inside the top-10.

Highland President has been on an astonishing run of form recently, and he continued it this week. Starting off the first day by jumping clear in the CSI5* 1,60m Sport Ireland Classic, taking a top-10 finish and qualifying for the Grand Prix.

Jumping clear in the first round, he was one of 12 horses in the super-competitive jump off, eventually finishing in 5th place.  In the last 3 starts at CSI5* 1,60m Grand Prix level, he has finished inside the top-5 – an impressive feat.

A big thank you to the team at Dublin Horse Show for another magical week of sport – and to our team of staff, sponsors and owners whose support enables us to keep producing these results.

We’re delighted that Trevor and Highland President have been selected to represent Ireland at the European Championships in Milan next month – so all roads lead to Italy from here on in!
