2018 has been a year of ups and downs but thankfully more ups!!

New Year’s eve marked my wedding anniversary and this photo sums up what’s most important in life- family.

I’m excited for 2019 and the goals and challenges that lie ahead. We will have our new Karlswood base at home in Dunboyne completed by April.

I have put together a few very exciting new Grand Prix horses for the coming season for the top level and I believe it’s the best group of horses that I have ever had so with a bit of luck hopefully things come together.

I’m excited for my students who all have big goals; Max and Tom are focused on making the pony team for the European Championships, Nikki is aiming to make an appearance on the senior Canadian Team, Nicola has some fantastic new horses and is working towards Grand Prix success with them and together with my Karlswood Team we look forward to making those dreams come true.

We will head to the Sunshine Tour in Vejer with around 30 horses in total between the students and some younger horses which will be competed by Ross and Darragh.

I’m happy that over the past few months the work put in has been rewarding and I think we are well set up for a very successful 2019 please God.

Happy New Year to all our friends and supporters.

Best wishes
