Another trip to Ireland and another really good week. We thought we had better let some of Kevin’s other owners have a go at winning and Kevin duly obliged for two of them! We ran Killossery Karisma and Brookfield Innocent in the CIC2*  and were pleased with both, although they finished down the field because they were a little off the pace after dressage and show jumping so Kevin took it steady across country. We are in preparation for another foreign outing in the next couple of weeks so watch this space.

July 30th

We have had a fantastic week at Camphire in Ireland. We took three horses and WON with two of them! Brookfield Innocent (Arthur) won the CIC2* section and Brookfield Quality (Norris) won the CCI1*, both with Kevin McNab in the saddle. neither horse put a foot wrong and Norris finished on his dressage score! Arthur had a show jump rail but his dressage was so good it did not matter in the long run. Sadly Killossery Karisma over-reached in the show jumping phase of the CIC3* so we had to withdraw him before cross country but that did not dampen spirits at all! Many thanks to Alison Swinburn who became our co-conspirator earlier this year in our efforts to achieve eventing world domination and we certainly could not run the horses without her contribution.  Here we are with Alison and her daughters, and Kevin, counting our prizes!
